This wine is soaring in character and quality and is fast on its route to becoming one of the icons of vino Italiano. It's hard to know where to start. Many great Etna reds are Burgundian in character, but oddly, this wine appears more Bordelaise, especially in this excellent vintage. The wine is beautifully conditioned and fine, yet it is exuberant and fruit forward at the same time. It opens to delicate aromas of dried flowers, spice, wild berry and black currant. The tannins are extremely well managed and they appear silky and firm on the close. The wine has all the right qualities, from acidity to pristine primary fruit, to promise a long aging window. -Monica Larner

A very pretty red with berry, cherry and floral character. Some chalk, too. Medium body, firm and lightly chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. From ancient vines. Drink or hold.

(92+) Bright ruby-red. Perfumed aromas of red currant, raspberry and spicecake. Showcases a cool-climate personality, featuring very refined, gently sweet, spice-accented red berry flavors brightened by a tangy mineral... (92+) Bright ruby-red. Perfumed aromas of red currant, raspberry and spicecake. Showcases a cool-climate personality, featuring very refined, gently sweet, spice-accented red berry flavors brightened by a tangy mineral and orange zest nuance. Finishes with noteworthy spicy and mineral elements gaining strength in the glass and carrying through on the lingering, floral finish. Just a trace of heat at the back, but much better balance than the Contrada Rampante. Mainly Nerello Mascalese planted at roughly 900 meters above sea level.
