90(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January 2014

(a blend of 98% nerello mascalese and 2% nerello cappuccio; 14.5% alcohol):  Moderately saturated ruby-red.  Aromas of blackberry, licorice, tar and licorice, lifted by a floral nuance.  Supple and silky on entry, then turns increasingly tough and tannic in the middle, with reticent darker fruit flavors firmed on the end by iron and mineral nuances.  This complex wine finishes with good breadth but will need at least a couple years to unwind.  I find the tannins in most 2011 Etna reds to be tough and slightly bitter, and it's telling that even Terre Nere, which usually makes beautifully perfumed, silky wines, had trouble achieving this result in the vintage.
