Benanti Il Monovitigno Nerello Mascalese 2009 / 750 ml.

Item#: 45607

RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th Apr 2014
The 2009 Nerello Mascalese Il Monovitigno is laced with flint and shaved lead pencil with tight aromas of dried fruit and black currant. The wine is exceptionally focused and tight with a sharp, forthcoming delivery. This is one of the best expressions of the grape available today. Fruit is sourced from three vineyard sites at various points of the Etna volcanic cone that range from 450 to 800 meters above sea level. Uncork this wine two or three hours before serving. Drink 2015–2022.
