Smoky with earthy minerality and red cherry and plum on the nose, also throwing out hints of fresh raspberries and even floral notes of rose and violet. Great acidity with a tannic structure and a lingering finish.


Tasting Notes

Transparent pale ruby, alike Pinot Noir or Sangiovese grapes. Kaos is mainly based on Nerello Mascalese, the grape delivers classic musky aromas. The red fruits feels ripe and round with a sweet and spicy element terribly appealing. Smoky and mineral, it is elegant and complex. The palate is rounds and has bright berries and black cherries. Spicy notes from the barrel ageing with Vanilla and cinnamon. The old chestnut barrel provides this sweet feeling. The end is fresh and mineral high tone. The resulting wine is elegant and refined with a beautiful balance and structure.


Press Note:

“Great things are done when men and mountains meet,” penned William Blake. Maybe he’s been to Etna and met David Bentivegna, the winemaker at one of Sicily’s most exciting wineries Etnella. Quitting his managerial job at German manufacturing giant Siemens he headed for the hills with a mission to make wines that touch the soul. The buyer by Chris Wilson Il Collettivo 2019
