While viticulture on the slopes of Mount Etna dates back thousands of years, only in the last decade or two have the wines produced on Sicily’s mythical volcano entered the global spotlight. Eager to exploit the terroir riches of this stunning natural wonder, waves of newcomers from around Italy and abroad have settled, relying on both traditional methods and modern enology to search for Etna’s truest expression.

90% Nerello Mascalese, 10% indigenous varieties (Minnella, Inzolia, Carricante, Grecanico, Catarratto, Malvasia)

Dusty, slightly peppery, liquorice root, cherry and raspberry, a smattering of dried herb and orange peel. It’s medium-bodied, dusty tannin grip, ash and stones, distinctly volcanic character, blood orange and strawberry, plenty of dry tannin on an aromatic finish of fine length. No shortage of tannin here, which some may find a little too much, granted, but also freshness and personality. Tasted: Oct 2022; Alcohol: 13.5%; Price: $59; Closure: Cork; Drink: 2022-2028+; Rated: 95 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
