“The 2021 Etna Rosso is spicy with a burst of savory herbs and flowery underbrush, complicating a core of dried black cherries. It flows across the palate like pure silk, polished and refined with mounting saline mineral tones contrasting its ripe wild berry fruits. The 2021 takes on a juicy quality through the finale, leaving gently grippy tannins to mingle with lavender and inner rose. This remarkably pretty Etan Rosso should drink beautifully with only minimal cellaring.”

“Sweet aromas, like marzipan, sour black cherry and mulberry rise from the glass. The wine shows notes of candied citrus fruits, tomato leaves and oregano. The 2021 Idda has a clear expression of ripe and sweet fruit on the palate. Remarkably Burgundian in weight and style for a wine from somewhere so completely different.”

“An intriguing nose with smoky volcanic ash, and hints of Mediterranean scrub, followed by myrtle, blackberry, mulberry, and wild juniper notes. In the mouth, the wine shows a nice freshness and minerality with wild fruit and slightly vegetal notes. The tannins evolve and become more elegant, especially when the wine has time to breathe.”
