This single-vineyard wine from high up on Mount Etna is filled with cherry and raspberry, with secondary aromas and flavours of wild herbs and floral characteristics. The palate is meaty and smoky, with fine-grained tannins and a great finish.

2016; 93 POINTS, WINE ADVOCATE The 2016 Etna Rosso Feudo is distinguished by wild fruit and forest floor. It also delivers an exciting note of dried basil or rosemary oil that pops from the bouquet with attractive vertical lift. This is a delicate, almost fragile wine (at least in terms of its aromas). But the mouthfeel is firm, tight and full of electric spark.
2017; 92+ POINTS, WINE ADVOCATE I love the spice and tangy fruit you get in the 2017 Etna Rosso Feudo, which is spicier and more exotic in character compared to past vintages. The effect is lovely, because the wine is well balanced by very crisp, crunchy wild berry fruit. This is one of the most beautiful, delicate and yet fragile expressions you can get from Etna. The wine is brimming with finesse and elegance. I tasted it right after opening the bottle and again about 24 hours later, and its evolution is impressive and multifaceted, adding more complexity and intensity the longer the wine is in the glass.
