Girolamo Russo's Etna Rosso San Lorenzo is silky smooth, with ultra-fine tannins and bright red fruits. This has a beautiful saline quality, and the minerality of the terroir really shines through. Airy and bright, but still packing a ton of flavour, this is a wine not to be missed.

94 POINTS, WINE ADVOCATE The 2015 Etna Rosso San Lorenzo is almost all Nerello Mascalese with a tiny bit (just 2%) Nerello Cappuccio. I love the extreme balance that this wine shows with its medley of aromas that span from berry fruit and spice to dark volcanic mineral. San Lorenzo adds a touch of sweetness or softness, although you can hardly call it that given the austerity and structural firmness you should expect of this noble Sicilian grape. That elegance does a lot to soften the mouthfeel and ultimately renders the wine more accessible but complex at the same time.
