Tenuta di Fessina Etna Rosso Il Musmeci 2008

Tenuta di Fessina Etna Rosso Il Musmeci 750ML 2008     
Sku: 22809

This wine is dedicated to the Musmeci family, in particular, Mr. Musmeci, who for so many years looked after these estate vineyards (”I vigne di Fessina”) with so much love that today the winery is able to cultivate 80-year-old vines. This cru-level wine is made from a blend of Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio from the oldest vines of the estate grown on the highest hills. The resulting wine is unparalleled in richness, concentration, and depth.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 91 points (Jun 2011)
The 2008 Etna Rosso Il Musmeci is 95% Nerello Mascalese and 5% Nerello Cappuccio from vineyards planted in 1920. Layers of dark fruit emerge from this powerful old-vine red, accentuated by hints of sweet tobacco and cedar. This is a decidedly intense style for the Etna. It will be interesting to see the direction Musmeci takes from here. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.

Food pairing
Pair this wine with veal dishes, tomato sauces, veal parmigiana, and quiche Lorraine.
