While incredibly complex, the 2019 Etna Rosso San Lorenzo Piano delle Colombe is also amazingly finessed, pulling me close with minty herbs and rose tones, only to find depths of pomegranate, black cherries and Indian spice. This is seamlessly silky and refined, built on energy, yet with an underlying structural tension that builds over time, as primary fruits and minerals saturate, and grippy tannins slowly take hold. Throughout it all, nervous acidity keeps the mouth watering and refreshed, as the 2019 finishes youthfully tannic yet long and perfumed. Today, the Piano delle Colombe is enjoyable in its potential, as the balance here really tempts the imagination
