The 2018 (Giodo’s third Etna release) is pale ruby red in colour. The nose is immediately mineral – evoking rocks and earth. Pure fruit aromas of freeze-dried raspberries, strawberries and dried cherries follow, with perfumed sweet roses and a hint of smoke. On the palate the concentration is superb – so intense and pronounced; the fruit is crunchy and tart with cranberries and raspberries. This is a dry and sappy wine, with firm, mineral tannins – but it softens on the finish with a gorgeous sweet fatness, before returning with a fantastic fresh drive of acidity – long, linear and very pure.
