Benanti Etna Contrada Cavaliere 2019

$54

Delivers macerated cherry and strawberry fruit that's sweet and juicy, yet this light- to medium-bodied red is fresh and minerally overall, with a tarry underpinning. Reveals accents of dried thyme and spiced orange peel that linger on the chalky finish, where sculpted tannins emerge. Best from 2024 through 2029. 555 cases made, 200 cases imported.
