      “Alta Mora” Rosso Etna DOC 2017

      Bright, bright garnet, very clear bouquet with emphatically fresh fruit notes of berries and rhubarb, elegant on the palate with well-dosed power, smooth tannin; juicy, persistent and long SUPERIORE.DE

      "Coconut and hazelnut aromas mingle with ripe, dark-skinned berry aromas. Reflecting the nose, the tight palate offers toast, licorice and blackberry jam alongside tightly knit, drying tannins." Wine Enthusiast

      "A compact, minerally version, with tobacco and smoke notes leading to flavors of dried cherry, pomegranate, coffee and spice. Medium-bodied and fresh, with grippy tannins that should integrate well with short cellaring." Wine Spectator

      "Luminous red. Aromas of flinty red berries, red cherries and minerals have a bright floral overlay. Then very good inner-mouth perfume too, with exhilarating lift to the red fruit and stony flavors. The finish is long and clean, nicely framed by suave tannins and harmonious acidity." Vinous

      "Aromas of lemon, watermelon and black cherries follow through to a medium body, firm, silky tannins and a solid, bright finish. Tighter style to this." James Suckling

      "The 2017 Etna Rosso is a terrific entry-level red wine from the Sicilian volcano that boasts the power and electric charge that I associate with wines from this fascinating territory. If you are new to the wines of Etna, this Rosso is a great place to start. This is a well-made and carefully shaped Nerello Mascalese that ushers forth smaller berry fruit, smoke and pencil shavings. The fruit is pure and precise. The wine's overall presentation is sharp and accessible." Robert Parker

      Ghiaia, a pure Nerello Mascalese from the slopes of Etna, exudes sweet aromas of cherries and flowers. A refined, very seductive wine with great charm, character and personality. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2015 Sicilia Nerello Mascalese Ghiaia Nera shows a polished and brilliant dark ruby hue. This wine remains focused on the smallest aromatic details. You get forest berry, smoke, tar, spice and subtle volcanic ash. The wine is balanced and maybe a bit more fleshy and medium-bodied than past vintages have proven to be. This vintage is attractive and versatile nonetheless, and you get terrific value here." Robert Parker

      "The dried-strawberry, fresh-herb and perfume character is fresh and appealing. Medium body, firm and velvety tannins. Long and flavorful. Always excellent." James Suckling

    Things to know about
    Etna
     

    The wine-growing region of Sicily is characterized by boundless vastness and contrasts, such as the Scottish humid, misty coolness of Erice and the hellish heat of Randazzo at the foot of the Etna. Until the 1990s, international grape varieties were predominantly cultivated here, but the autochthonous grape variety Nero d'Avola in the foreground. The "New Sicily" is today determined by wines with their own aroma profile, which do not deny their very different origins. They have one thing in common: they are intensely fruity, warm and offensive. The Etna region occupies an exciting (top) position within Sicily that has only been internationally recognised in recent years. The wines are often less luxuriant, have a very special texture; acidity and tannin play an important role. SUPERIORE.DE

    "The classic Etna wine comes in part from the highest vineyards up to 1110 metres above sea level of Etna, from eighty to one hundred year old vines, which produce extremely low yields and can usually only be cultivated in elaborate manual work. They are light-coloured, transparent wines (e.g. from Passopisciaro) with pronounced acidity and fine, but decided tannin and more peppery-vegetable than fruity aromas as well as saltiness reminiscent of ash. Wines that do not welcome you with open arms, but whose rewarding friendship you gradually earn. Lovers of Nebbiolo and Burgundy must get to know the wines of Etna!" Andreas March, Merum
