Azienda Agricola Crasà SRC Rivaggi 2016

From old vines on Mount Etna comes one of the best things I have drunk in an eon (or since last release). This is top of the tree, younger generation winemakers applying a veil to hallowed turf on the northern slope Sicily’s smoking volcano. A blend of nerello mascalese and grenache. To paraphrase GW, ‘I could have gone a point higher on this for sheer pleasure, audacity of feel, but it felt about right where it landed’. Tasted over two days, then the remainder was finished off standing in my kitchen alongside, charry, crisp-based homemade pizzas.
