Pietro Caciorgna Guardoilvento Etna Rosso 2017

Sicily, ItalyPaolo Caciorgna is a renowned Italian Oenologist having worked in some of the greatest names in Tuscan viticulture. Along with consulting to many Italian wine producers he has his own label, Pietro Caciorgna named in dedication to his Father Pietro. Paolo acquired plots of ancient ungrafted vines in the Contrada Marchesa. Dark, dusky, and herbal, with a massive wild Mediterranean scrub in this full bodied red. Tannins are big, grippy, and wild, and there's a cool mint that runs the length of this. Great presence.Tasted: 18 September 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: Italy 16.00 Italy - EUR Producer: Tenute Pietro CaciorgnaGrape: Nerello Mascalese
