Tenuta delle Terre Nere "Prephyloxera Vigna di Don Peppino" Etna Rosso 2014

96+ Vinous, Ian D'Agata
(12/2016) "Luminous red. Red cherry, marzipan, raspberry jam, quinine, blood orange and a dusting of powdered minerals on the drop-dead gorgeous nose. Wonderfully juicy, sweet and gripping in the mouth, showing superb nuance and verve to the soft, fleshy red fruit, candied violet and balsamic flavors. Finishes vibrant and with noteworthy length; broad but polished tannins coat the entire mouth. An Etna Rosso of memorable purity and precision, this is great to drink already but promises greater things still to come. Made from a parcel of old pre-phylloxeric vines that grow in the Calderara Sottana vineyard (one row of which actually grows in the Santo Spirito cru), but at 100+ years of age, the Don Peppino vines are much older than those used for the Calderara Sottana bottling. In fact, this wine is a textbook example of the importance of old vines, because as delightful as the Calderara Sottana Etna Rosso is, the Don Peppino is vastly superior due to its softer, nobler tannins and greater depth and complexity of fruit. Drinking Window: 2018 - 2026."

Terrazze dell'Etna "Cirneco" Etna Rosso 2010

(3/2015) "I tasted the 2010 Etna Rosso Cirneco (100% Nerello Mascalese) last year and had the chance to revisit the wine again. Since then, not much has changed although my impression is that it has started to flesh out nicely. It shows more spice coloring of cinnamon and clove this year. This is an austere and stubborn wine that plays its cards close to its chest. It reveals crushed stone, dark fruit and grilled herb with slow precision. These qualities bode well for its future evolution. So does the tannic management. The wine is stern, firm and structured. Fruit comes from 60-year-old pre-phylloxera vines that have been pruned down to just two clusters per vine."

Calabretta Terre Siciliane Rosso 2014

91+ Our Score
(4/2017) "Calabretta is a four generation, family estate on Sicily's volcanic Mt. Etna. They are committed to producing wines that are reflective of their place, using sustainable and organic vineyard practices and natural winemaking techniques that impart only natural yeasts and minimal sulphur . This particular bottling is a blend of Nerello Mascalese and Cappuccio. The Cappuccio adds more depth and color to the lighter Mascalese, producing a wine full of delicious red fruits layered with stony minerality, red florals and subtle smokinesss. The palate is dry, bright and medium bodied with an explosion of flavor that lingers on a long finish. A perfect match for beef dishes, roast pork or even seared duck breast. Delicious!"

Girolamo Russo "Feudo" Etna Rosso 2012

93 Wine Enthusiast
(4/1/2015) "Aromas of dark berry, wild flower, Mediterranean brush and dried herb lead the nose on this structured wine. The ripe, delicious palate boasts juicy red cherry, crushed raspberry, cinnamon and anise flavors that are framed in velvety tannins. It's balanced and elegant, with an energizing mineral finish. Drink through 2022."

(3/31/2016) "A perfumed, light- to medium-bodied red, with crushed raspberry, mineral and spice flavors. Light tannins show on the supple finish. Elegant and very drinkable. Drink now through 2021. 12,500 cases made."
