Winemakers Notes:
Multifaceted soils helped the wine to full maturity, giving it a restrained ripeness mixed with minerality. The aromas and flavors blend blackberry, black cherry with those mineral notes and a delicate hint of wood. The complex, elegant mouthfeel balances with firm tannins and lively acidity to create a very long finish and a wine that has great potential for longevity.

Blend: 95% Nerello Mascalese and 5% Nerello Cappuccio


Ratings & Reviews

95 Points - James Suckling:
"There is so much red berry fruit here such as redcurrants and raspberries as well as more ripe notes of ash, tar, dried rose petals and spices. The palate is quite rich and dense yet very much kept fresh by tangy fruit and pretty acidity. Long finish. Drink now." (October 2017)

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"Aromas of tobacco, menthol, coconut and a whiff of oak-driven spice lead the bouquet of this wine. The firm, focused palate boasts fine-grained tannins that lithely support flavors of dried black cherry, ripe raspberry, star anise and espresso. Drink 2020–2025." - Kerin O'Keefe (December 2018)

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2015 Etna Rosso Trimarchisa combines the lean, elegant approach that is the house style at Tornatore with the sunny exuberance of this warm vintage. The wine is made with 95% Nerello Mascalese and 5% Nerello Cappuccio and is aged in oak for one year. You get bold red fruit with dried cherry and raspberry framed by ash, licorice and crushed stone. This wine is ready to drink straight out of the gate, thanks to its integrated tannins and acidity. Some 12,000 bottles were made." - Monica Larner (December 2018)

91 Points - Antonio Galloni, Vinous:
"Good full ruby. High-pitched and tightly wound in the mouth, with juicy and pure floral red berry flavors. This clean, sneakily ripe wine offers more fruit and herbal notes on the clean, building, long finish. A blend of 95% Nerello Mascalese and 5% Nerello Cappuccio planted in the Trimarchisa contrada in the Verzella zone sloping down to the Alcantara river on mostly lava-rich and calcareous soil. No small merit is that it hides its 14% alcohol well." - Ian D'Agata (August 2019)
