2017 Palmento Costanzo

Grapes Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappucio
Colour Red
Origin Italy, Sicily
District Etna

The 2017 Etna Rosso Nero di Sei is dark and rich in the glass, offering up notes of plum and medicinal cherries complemented by brown spices and a hint of vanilla bean. It’s silky-textured, yet it quickly firms up with notes of cranberry, sour citrus and fine tannins that mount toward the close. The cheeks pucker from a mix of residual acids, tart primary fruit and structure as the Nero di Sei finishes incredibly long. This will require a number of years to show its best. However, expect the elevated acidity and tart flavors to always be front and center. Drinking range: 2023 - 2027 Rating: 90 Eric Guido, (Jun 2021)

Palmento Costanzo

A property of 14 hectares in Contrada Santo Spirito, Passopisciaro, on the northern slopes of Etna. 10 hectares are planted with vines on walled terraces on volcanic rocks between 600-800 metres altitude. The Costanzos came here in 2011 - they are from Catania - and meticulously restored the palmento (the word for the olive millstone which gave the farm its name). The vineyards are planted employing the ‘gobelet' method and farmed organically. The 2017’s are certified organic. This is an amazing new project which has been given all the investment and attention it needed to make great wines from the outset.
