''This places purity of fruit up front, yet then seduces the senses with depths of minerals, dried roses, red currants, exotic spice and citrus that set off the entire experience.'' Eric Guido, Vinous Media (Previous Vintage Review)

''This is a juicy and fun effort, one that places purity of fruit up front, yet then seduces the senses with depths of minerals, dried roses, red currants, exotic spice and citrus that set off the entire experience.'' Eric Guido, Vinous Media (Previous Vintage Review)
''Mount Etna's terroir is rocky and mineral rich. These soils are fashioned from the succession of eruptions dating back millennia. What has made the red wines of Etna so appealing is their similarity in some ways to Pinot Noir and Burgundy. The tannins are quite silky and aromas of strawberry and cherry call to mind Pinot Noir.'' Joseph Micallef & Tom Hyland, Forbes.com
''Just Beautiful. Perfect in its dawn-spider-web of delicacy, tension and translucency.'' JancisRobinson.com
