Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - James Suckling:
"From the moment you hang your nose in the glass, it’s clear that there are plenty of ripe plums, but not the slightest hint of prune character. However, there is a ton of subtle, herbal nuances in here, too. Powerful and concentrated with plenty of healthy tannins that carry the long, dry finish. Drink or hold." - (10 Aug, 2018)

92 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"In the same mold, the 2016 Etna Rosso offers a rocking perfume of blueberries, wild strawberries, garrigue, and damp earth-like minerality. This incredibly perfumed, floral wine hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, a tight, focused texture, terrific purity, and a great finish. As with the 2015, it's not a massive wine and has an almost Pinot Noir-like elegance and weight. It's another singular effort to drink over the coming 5-7+ years." - Jeb Dunnuck (12/13/2018)

91+ Points - Vinous:
"Bright red. Subdued nose hints at red flowers, bright red berries and powdered rocks. Clean, fresh and mineral in the mouth, but with a greater herbal presence than on the nose, finishing long, vibrant and juicy."- Ian D'Agata (Aug 2019)

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:

"Strawberry, wild rose, citrus and Mediterranean herb aromas take center stage on this fragrant red. Reflecting the nose, the focused, vibrant palate offers pomegranate, blood orange, star anise and hint of espresso alongside firm acidity and fine-grained tannins. Drink 2020–2026. Kerin O’Keefe" - (12/1/2018)
