2013 Tenuta di Aglaea "Thalìa" Etna Rosso

SKU #1253843 Jancis Robinson

 Nerello Mascalese. Mid garnet with a brick rim. Exuberant red fruit and herbal nose – so inviting. Bags of fruit sweetness on the palate balanced by fine dry tannins and great acidity. Elegant, dry and long. 17/20 points (JH)  (11/2015)

Wine Enthusiast

 Aromas recall oak, espresso, coconut, dill and dried herb. The dominant oak sensations carry through to the palate, including vanilla, coffee and a confectionary note alongside raw, red berry. Tightly knit and aggressive wood tannins provide the framework. (KO)  (4/2015)

K&L Notes

Tenuta di Aglaea cultivates the indigenous and mysterious Nerello grape on the cool volcanic terraces of Sicily's Mount Etna. Perfumed with minerally aromas, the wine is marked by a firm body and a freshness of fruit tones with gentle tannins. It is a wine of subtlety and will reward several years of cellaring. Try it with antipasti, pasta, vegetable dishes, and lighter meats like pork, veal, and poultry. 100% Nerello Mascalese.

Italy

- 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. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
