The 2015 Etna Rosso San Lorenzo is almost all Nerello Mascalese with a tiny bit (just 2%), Nerello Cappuccio. I love the extreme balance that this wine shows with its medley of aromas that span from berry fruit and spice to dark volcanic mineral. San Lorenzo adds a touch of sweetness or softness, although you can hardly call it that given the austerity and structural firmness you should expect of this noble Sicilian grape. That elegance does a lot to soften the mouthfeel and ultimately renders the wine more accessible but complex at the same time.
