Winemakers Notes:
Tornatore Pietrarizzo Etna Rosso is from Sicily's Mt. Etna region. The terraced vineyards 700m high atop the slopes of Mt. Etna, vines struggle for water in rocky soil, producing grapes with intense color and fruit character, balanced by racy acidity and refined structure. Elegant and beautifully balanced, the Pietrarizzo Rosso red wine has aromas and characteristics of wild strawberry, dried florals, red cherry, fresh herbs and spice, which integrate on the full-bodied palate with notes of slate and limestone before a smooth, lengthy finish. This Italian red wine is appellated from Etna Rosso DOC and is 100% Nerello Mascalese.


Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - James Suckling:
"Very bright and focused with aromas of sliced strawberries, citrus and violets that follow through to a full body, juicy fruit and a flavorful finish. Chewy. Better in 2020, but already a beauty." (October 2018)

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"Wild rose, red berry, dark spice and Mediterranean brush aromas come together to create a delicate, alluring fragrance. The smooth, elegant palate doles out juicy red cherry, strawberry, white pepper and clove alongside polished, silky tannins. Bright acidity gives it tension and energy. It's already approachable, but will age well for several more years. Drink through 2026." - Kerin O'Keefe (December 2018)


89 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Made with fruit from young vines in the Contrada Pietrarizzo, the 2016 Etna Rosso Pietrarizzo is a pure expression of Nerello Mascalese that is fermented in cement vats and later aged in oak barrel for 12 months. Some 23,000 bottles were made. The bouquet offers wild fruit and hints of crushed white pepper. The bouquet is simple and forthcoming. You get a hint of steeped-tea astringency on the close." - Monica Larner (December 2019)
