Winemakers Notes:
Tornatore Etna Rosso is ruby red wine with faint purple color, a typical trait of the Nerello Mascalese variety, which is not known for rich color. The wine has notes of macerated strawberries and raspberries, morello cherries and black plum, which blend with subtle hints of herbs and earth. Surprisingly full in structure, fine tannins and bright acidity give the wine richness, complexity and persistence. This Italian red wine is appellated from Etna Rosso DOC and is 95% Nerello Mascalese and 5% Nerello Cappuccio.

Blend: 95% Nerello Mascalese 5% Nerello Cappuccio


Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"Aromas of red berry, rose, thyme and a whiff of camphor shape the fragrant nose. Sleek and graceful, the lithe, savory palate delivers juicy strawberry, crushed raspberry, Mediterranean herbs and white pepper framed in glossy tannins and fresh acidity. A mineral note evoking smoky flint lingers on the finish. " - Kerin O'Keefe (December 2019)

92 Points - James Suckling:
"Lots of red plums here with glazed cherries and lemons. Medium body, fine and silky tannins and a refined finish. Drink now." (November 2019)

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Opening to a mild garnet color and pretty ruby transparency, the Tornatore 2017 Etna Rosso has a bouquet that is tight and streamlined, with wild rose and forest fruit followed by crushed stone and tangy mountain herb. The blend is 95% Nerello Mascalese and 5% Nerello Cappuccio, and this 2017 vintage shows more grit and volume compared to past editions. That extra level of textural fiber would pair with porchetta or roast lamb. There's a salty note on the close. Production is in the neighborhood of 100,000 bottles." - Monica Larner (October 2019)


91 Points - Antonio Galloni, Vinous:
"Luminous red. Pretty floral and mineral notes complement pure sour red cherry, flinty herbs and spicy blueberry aromas and flavors. Bright and juicy, with a light to medium-weight frame, with a clean, crisp presence on the long fresh finish. A lovely red that goes down like water." - Ian D'Agata (August 2019)
