    Unique, exotic and hard to pull away from, the 2019 Etna Rosso wafts up from the glass with a dark mix of grilled herbs, ash, musky black currants, dried roses and hints of candle wax. The expression is soft and round at first, yet with a core of sour red berries and citrus to contrast, as brisk acids maintain a fresh persona. This finishes with medium length and lightly structured, with a tart tug of primary concentration that creates a slightly chewy impression. This is far from your easy-going Rosso and could use a short stay in the cellar to soften its contours.
