Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Etna Rosso is a beautiful wine that manages to effectively communicate both the elegance and the power of this stellar appellation in Sicily. There is also a straightforward or straight-shooting aspect to the wine that adds to its focus and the sharpness of its aromatic delivery. Bright acidity and fine tannins add to that linearity and simplicity. This is 95% Nerello Mascalese with 5% Nerello Cappuccio. The wine is fermented in large oak casks, and it ages in large oak containers for up to 18 months. Some 120,000 bottles were made.

Wine EnthusiastAromas of toasted nut and Mediterranean scrub lead the nose. It's very pale, almost amber in colored and a bit evolved, offering suggestions of white peach and citrus zest alongside a hint of tangy acidity. A saline note signals the close.
