Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, September 2017
The 2013 Contrada P is a red wine from Etna that promises long-term drinking appeal. The P stands for Porcaria and this vineyard consistently gives Andrea Franchetti some of his best results. This expression shows... The 2013 Contrada P is a red wine from Etna that promises long-term drinking appeal. The P stands for Porcaria and this vineyard consistently gives Andrea Franchetti some of his best results. This expression shows heightened fruit intensity with articulate aromas of wild berry and black currant, followed by balsam herb and grilled rosemary. As you should expect, those volcanic tones of ash and crushed stone also play a big role in forming the aromatic complexity of this wine. - Monica Larner

Antonio Galloni's Vinous, December 2015
Dark red. Subdued aromas of of red berries, cherry, marzipan and sweet herbs. Then richer and riper on the palate than the nose suggests, displaying sweet red fruit, licorice and stone flavors. At once plump and juicy... Dark red. Subdued aromas of of red berries, cherry, marzipan and sweet herbs. Then richer and riper on the palate than the nose suggests, displaying sweet red fruit, licorice and stone flavors. At once plump and juicy, this wine displays impressive delicacy on the rather long, high-acid finish. Contrada P stands for Porcaria, a cru located at 600 to 700 meters; Franchetti’s roughly 80-year-old vines face north. -- Ian D'Agata

Wine Spectator, January 2016
A seamless red, light- to medium-bodied and fresh, with chewy tannins framing flavors of raspberry and black cherry fruit, woodsy spice and smoky mineral. Drink now through 2023. — A.N.
