The 2017 Etna Rosso Feudo launches up from the glass with an intense and rich display of crushed black cherries, balsamic-tinged brown spice and incense. Its textures are silky, even fleshy in feel, with a saturating mix of citrus-tinged, tart red and black fruits, all motivated by vibrant acidity. This boasts tremendous concentration yet carries it well, as a coating of fine tannin struggles to emerge, creating a push and pull of sweet and sour tension. There’s a lot of warm-vintage character packed into the 2017 Feudo, yet it maintains admirable balance. (Eric Guido, Vinous, June 2021)

High toned tart and ripe red fruits: plush red plum, strawberry, red cherry. Slightly brambly. Game, meat, sour cherry, clove, dried herbs, mushroom, forest floor. Sanguine on the palate. Fruits went tart. Medium plus acid, tannins, and alcohol. Medium minus concentration, pale ruby with a brick rim. Classic. Called it correctly during a blind 😊
