2007 I Custodi "Aetneus" Etna Rosso

SKU #1111796 91 points Wine Enthusiast

 Part of the natural wine movement, this organically farmed blend of Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio and Alicante shows harmony and elegance. It shows some age too, with aromas of tar, licorice, cassis, prune and dark tobacco. It feels supersmooth and silky.  (3/ 2013)

James Halliday

 Smells so much riper than the Feudo Cavaliere from the same vintage - damson and plum fruit. Some undergrowth reveals the development in bottle. Rich with a tangy, spicy, long finish.  (11/ 2013)

This is new for K&L from a winery that Chris Miller was told to visit on his trip to Sicily. The vines from the slopes of Etna are up to 250 years old. Dark black fruit fills the nose giving the impression that the wine will be powerful but an elegance comes through on the palate with layers of leather, orange peel, spice and of course the volcanic minerality. This is a very structured wine so it is best with dinner or a bit of cellaring. This is not to be missed.

A nice saturated, ruby in the glass. Tar, cherry, leather & earth in the glass. Loads so spice, stewed cherries & prunes fill this juicy, fruity & acidic wine. The tannins are still quite evident which should make this an ideal pairing for weeds & sausage. You can taste the intensity from the volcanic, mountain grown fruit. Highly recommended!

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages.
