*Special Offer Price $59.95 per bottle with code FEUDO

Giuseppe Russo’s top reds mark for me Etna's extreme of both fruit purity and textural tenderness.  And the ‘19s particularly so, a set capped with this superbly elegant single-site. 

‘Feudo’ is a parcel-within-a-parcel bottling isolating a little island of 70 year old vines within a larger holding Russo separates out for standalone bottling.  It’s almost entirely Mascalese with just a slash of co-planted Cappuccio raised entirely in large neutral barrel. 

A wonderful raspberry intensity on the nose and then the smoky volcanic wisps behind.  I love that this granitic aspect remains subtle and inferential, a welcome swerve from the too-gushy minerality you often find here.  A supple mouthfeel frames the vivid and impressively pure fruit beautifully.  Just a dusting of tannin on the finish yet a notable contribution to both sweetness and length.  

Gorgeous stuff, indeed at the very top of its category.
