    The 2018 Etna Rosso Contrada Cavaliere holds nothing back, presenting a seductive bouquet of musky ripe cherries and strawberries, contrasted by hints of animal musk. It’s soft-textured and fleshy in feel, as juicy acids further amplify its display of red berries and spice. Hints of licorice linger along with pretty inner florals, and the Cavaliere cleans up nicely through the lightly structured finale. There’s no need to wait on this fresh and fruit-focused Nerello Mascalese.
