    94 Irene Badalá Etna DOC (Rosé)

    Creamy slightly coconut aromas. Rich white citrus, white peach fruit but not fruity. Weighty, serious extraction, again showing an elegance atypical of northern Etna. Powdery chalky acidity with long pristine length and a crystal clarity. Maybe harvested earlier - but precision winemaking with interesting fruit. Not fruit driven, structural.

Long white citrus clean fruit, Delicate - seems atypical of northern Etna as more pristine and austere -earlier harvestd - cooler location? Still good weight of ripe fruit - wild red berries, a sour saline minerality and a mouthwatering juiciness. Still very youthful
