Bright ruby-red in color, Erse entices the senses with aromas of crushed berries, plums, and smoky minerality. On the palate, it is a delicate, finely textured red which unfolds into a lengthy, elegant finish. Pair this wine with braised beef, curries, spicy Mexican dishes, or chicken vindaloo.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Etna Rosso Erse is different in personality compared to the 2014 vintage. That previous edition showed a bright and vibrant quality of fruit. This classic blend of 80% Nerello Mascalese and 20% Nerello Cappuccio is darker and more austere in comparison. It reveals rustic and wild characteristics that I associate with Nerello Cappuccio. Indeed, that grape leaves a heavier mark on the bouquet, and there is a distinct aroma of freshly milled white pepper. The mouthfeel also shows a sudden spot of astringency.
