This is an outstanding wine from Etna Rosso. It has a lucid ruby brick color with perfumes of black tar, rose petals, and a cool mossy tarp covering black berries. Light, but sneaky tannins and still elegant - like Etna’s answer to Nebbiolo. The texture is seriously velvety, medium bodied, with lots of acid. A firm structure built on volcanic minerality, balanced fruit, and well integrated acidity. For $25 this wine drinks at twice it’s value in Piedmont. — a month ago
God this wine is so effing good. Gorgeous pale ruby, vivid red fruit, dusty earth, a backbone of volcanic minerals. The tannins are there but soft and combined with the high acid content this wine is just perfect for food. Paired with pasta alla Norma and it was just about perfect. — 22 days ago
Bright & juicy with red cherry and red currant, some tobacco & spice and a good mineral streak. Comes across as very light but shows good grip on the palate. Nicely balanced with pronounced refreshing acidity and good length. Drinking very nicely. — a month ago

🏅 Rating: 91/100 (4,1🌟)
Clear bright ruby. First nose of perfumed red sour cherry in chocolate, dark cherry. Wet wood. Spices: black pepper. Tannins are firm, but not green.
In 20 min developed in Burgundy style similar to one of youthful Mercurey - red berries over meat and spicy tobacco, slightly green.
Shows beautifuly on the 2nd day, but fruits are more cooked.
Wine has reached its maturity and should drink nicely till 2025 — 24 days ago
A gorgeous mid weight wine that is almost Barolo like in appearance. Cassis and leather hit the palate and unfold graciously through the long finish. Now with thirteen years behind it, this wine has developed gorgeous tertiary notes that add sophistication. — 4 months ago
