Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - James Suckling:
"Aromas of red cherries, dried cranberries, citrus zest and tobacco smoke. It’s medium-bodied with fresh acidity, ultra fine tannins and a refined finish. More dried than fresh-fruit character. Drink or hold." (11/2020)

92 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2019 Etna Rosso blossoms with pretty rose notes, wild herbs and strawberries. It’s soft and enveloping, balancing a pleasant inner sweetness with energizing acidity and tart wild berries. A gentle layer of tannin adds lovely grip, as this finishes long with notes of licorice and blueberry skins. The 2019 is a harmonious beauty that has me seriously looking forward to tasting the single-vineyard wines of this vintage." – Eric Guido (6/2021)

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"Lithe and racy, this has aromas of wild red berry, Mediterranean herb and a whiff of flint. Ethereally graceful, the linear palate shows sour cherry, fresh strawberry and white pepper alongside vibrant acidity and taut, rather drying tannins. A saline note marks the close. Drink 2021–2026." - Kerin O’Keefe (11/1/2020)
