    "Contrada Zottorinoto" Rosso Riserva Etna DOC 2014 <br>6 Bottles in OWC

    Only about 2,000 bottles are filled every year by this noble Riserva. With a full aroma of black berries, balsamic nuances and spices and a full and clear taste, this great wine excellently combines finesse, elegance and softness. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Powerful, radiant ruby with garnet. Opened with notes of ripe, small blackberries, some plum, behind which iodine and liquorice. Full-bodied and dense at the beginning and the end, fine dark berry fruit, opens with present, dense tannin, in the final after liquorice." Falstaff

    "Moderately saturated ruby-red. Clean, flinty and characterized typically by darker fruit aromas and flavors than all of the other Cottanera red wines. Finishes with slow building but noble tannins and a multilayered quality. Zottorinotto evolves at a much slower pace than other Etna reds, so I’d suggest forgetting about this in your cellar for the next couple of years." Vinous

    "What a nose with tulips, dried rose petals, burnt oranges, pomegranate, mandarins, cinnamon, tamarind and black pepper. So juicy and generous yet structured and serious, the beautiful red fruit driven along by well-poised acidity and sturdy tannins." James Suckling

    "The 2014 Etna Rosso Riserva Zottorinoto is one of the stars in this exciting group of new releases from Etna. The wine is darkly saturated and powered by intense, territory-driven aromas. Wild cherry and cranberry emerge first with dark tones of crushed rock and camphor ash at the back. The mouthfeel is tight, elegant and very polished. This vintage shows a very tight and compact nature at its core that makes me think it will have a lot to offer as it continues its bottle evolution. Only 1,900 bottles were produced." Robert Parker
