Girolamo Russo Etna Rosso Calderara Sottana 2019

MCF Rare Wine

Giuseppe Russo is a quiet thoughtful man, formerly a pianist. Since 2005 he has been organically farming his family's old vineyards, many of the vines around 100 years of age, and he is restoring the old cellar under his house. He has 15 hectares of vines on the North side of Etna around the town of Passopisciaro.
For Pinot Noir and Nebbiolo lovers, Nerello Mascalese is an exciting find — it can produce reds with impressive delicacy as well as those with great structure. From the ‘Calderara Sottana’ single vineyard, this is a very seasoned red, with an elegant smokiness and a mineral backbone.
