Featured Red Wine for April – 2016 Terrazze Dell’Etna `Carusu` Etna Rosso
Published on April 4, 2023
Mount Etna wines are the product of a harsh but beautiful land. They are made from grapes grown on the slopes of Europe’s largest active volcano. The terrain is rough, but the wine it produces is refined and complex. The local red grape, Nerello Mascalese, is a light-bodied red wine with a taste profile that’s often likened to fine Pinot Noir. It is a wine that speaks of the history and the struggles of the people who grow it. To taste a Mount Etna wine is to taste the very essence of Sicily. It is a bold and adventurous wine that will transport you to the heart of this fiery land.
The Winecroft featured red wine for April is the 2016 Terrazze Dell’Etna `Carusu` Etna Rosso. This wine has an intense ruby colour with garnet edges. An elegant nose, with delicate perfumes, perfectly combined with ripe red fruit and spice. Round, soft tannins on the palate end with a delicate finish. The Carusu Etna Rosso is the perfect portrait of the site where it is produced.
This wine is on the winelist of Jamavar, the Michelin-starred Indian restaurant in Mayfair, London.

Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.
The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:
Light: You’re normally sensitive to things in general, such as changes in temperatures and loud noises. You are quite choosy with your wine tastes and have a preference for clean, delicate wines
Medium-bodied: You enjoy a wide variety of tastes, quite flexible with your choice of wines and enjoy delicate whites to full flavoured reds
Full-bodied: In life, you tend to be straightforward and decisive You enjoy intense flavours. A big and bold red wine would typically be your choice on the winelist.
Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
