    November 23, 2019 - Scary good for the price. Echo the reviewer who mentioned a lot of barnyard notes. Plenty of fruit coming thru as well though. Nose of earth, hay, pepper (spice, not capsicum), sour cherry, raspberry. Palate has medium(+) acidity; medium(-) tannin; and plenty of the same notes as the nose.

    Just tremendous. I've been trying Etnas off and on for a few years now, still have only had a dozen or so - but this takes the cake. I've finally had one that reminds me of great Burgundy. If I had to knock it I'd say the finish could be a little more persistent.

    April 6, 2019 - Redan från första upphällningen en tydlig doft av smakrika, lite tvära körsbär, jordgubbe och blöt sten. Till munkänslan kom kryddighet och en trevlig strävhet mot slutet.

    October 6, 2018 - 3/5 - opened with a tonne of barnyard, good structure and tight tannin.

    Opened after an hour or two, some nice strawberry and tart cherry aromas, still rather tight on the palate.

    This would probably do well in a few years or with a good decant.

    November 19, 2017 - A serviceable Etna Rosso. Hits all the right notes and is just fine for a weeknight wine, but it's fairly simple in comparison to, say, some of the Terre Nere wines.
