Pale ruby. Flinty smoky red cherry and herbs on the enticing nose. Then clean fresh and easygoing, with a stony quality to the ripe but vibrant red cherry and redcurrant flavors. Finishes long and herbal with hints of flint. (Ian D'Agata, Vinous, August 2019)

Wonderful Etna Rosso. Plenty of red fruit, high minerality, very fine bones and tannins. Improves wonderfully in the glass. A great nerrelo mascalese (90 pct)

Red cherry, ripe raspberry, coriander seed, antica formula vermouth, hint of balsam & leather. Vibrant acidity, medium plus black tea like tannin but supple. Length is solid.

Generically fruity on the nose this one had a great tannin structure. Strict but pleasant and lots of red fruit. Got me thinking of nice nothern Italian wine.

Etna Rosso is quickly becoming my new obsession. Tart cranberry and cherry is balanced by dried savory herbs, compost, and puckering acidity.

Straying from Rhone to Etna Rosso - if I made Italian varieties would want it to be like this! Bright cherry note, mouth watering acid and a mix of minerality and soft tannins. Perfect pairing wine

the 14 is odd and different than her other vintages but is changing in compelling and surprising ways - like a child that goes down strange and meandering paths only to travel themselves to a place where they flourish and become the genius that they were destined to be
