2017 Planeta "Eruzione 1614" Nerello Mascalese

SKU #1453964 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A pure and very focused Etna red with aromas of cherries, strawberries, ash, rose petals and rose stems, following through to a full body with firm, chewy tannins and a bright, tightened finish. Shows class and persistence. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (11/2020)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Delicious and loaded with finesse, this Nerello Mascalese delivers aromas and flavors of ripe black cherry, blackberry and star anise, while smoky flint adds depth. Lithe, elegant tannins provide the polished framework. *Editors' Choice* (KO) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Planeta's 2017 Sicilia Nerello Mascalese Eruzione 1614 reveals a delicate and poised personality with small berry aromas and licorice followed by smoke, tar and ash. The wine delivers a subdued mouthfeel that slowly grows in intensity and length. You really taste the grape here, Nerello Mascalese, in its most naked and pure form. (ML) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Cask sample. Just mid crimson. Fine and concentrated raspberry with real depth and surprisingly expressive for this hot vintage. Light, fine, stalky raspberry palate with succulent, medium-bodied fruit. Firm tannins creeping up on the finish, betraying the year, but this will remain another year in cask. 14% but so lithe and yet powerful. 17+/20 points. (WS) Inner quote mark (4/2018)
