Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - James Suckling:
"Extremely aromatic red with dried flowers, cream, citrus and plums. Hint of pumice, too. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a delicious finish. So drinkable now, but better in 2020." - (28 Jul, 2018)

92+ Points - Vinous:
"Medium deep red. Inviting aromas of sweet spices, sour red berries, ripe red plum and musky herbs. Then dense and rich, with a refined element to the flinty red cherry and berry flavors that are both fleshy and spicy. Turns a bit more juicy and lemony on the long and very fresh back end. Made from 80-90 years old Nerello Mascalese vines planted at 800 meters above sea level on the northern slope of Etna." Ian D'Agata - (Aug 2019)

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2016 Etna Rosso Archineri is made with fruit from pre-phylloxera vines aged up to 90 years old. This is a finessed and nuanced expression from a vintage that threw a few curve balls to vintners on Etna where the climate and temperatures can change at the drop of a dime. The finish is shorter compared to vintages of the recent past, but this mid-weight red is very articulate in terms of its aromatic offerings. It shows small-berry aromas with lilac, spice and wild blueberry. Some 7,000 bottles were made." - Monica Larner (28th Dec 2018)
