Girolamo Russo ‘a Rina Etna Rosso 2021 Sicily

$59.95

Girolamo Russo ‘a Rina Etna Rosso 2021

Elegant aromas with good complexity, hints of cherry and plum, notes of leather and tobacco. A fresh and complex palate, with soft, velvety tannins, good structure and a silky, lingering finish.

Making wine on the slopes of Mount Etna is an intensely personal, profound and ongoing act of love. Love for the places of our youth. Love for a land which offers nourishment and asks for nothing in return, a land which embraces and holds on tight to and feeds anything that clings to it. A harsh land formed of restless lava, a land of oozing magma which expands and then rapidly cools and, as it tires, finds peace of a sort, eventually resembling a stony behemoth – a moonscape, conserving within in the memory of that fire.

We are such stuff as this land is made of. We, and this wine. And the wine resembles us, as though it were we who gave it life – we the fathers, it the son – when the truth is we are the product of our wine. A wine giddy with sun and with light and with the song of the wind in the valley. A wine that carries the breath of the volcano: a blend of smoke and ashes and ripe, fragrant fruit – a fruit which yields to the bite like a gentle caress. And the juice of that thick, delicate flesh is intense and full-bodied, its aromas a potent and subtle delight. This is a patient wine: it reveals itself gradually, and reserves the full strength of its character for those who understand that the rhythms of the earth are sacred.
