    "San Lorenzo" Rosso Etna DOC 2017

    Giuseppe Russo farms part of the 12-hectare San Lorenzo vineyard at an altitude of about 750 metres on the slopes of Mount Etna near Randazzo. The lava flows of recent decades have created a porous soil here that is rich in volcanic rock and therefore provides excellent drainage.

    San Lorenzo, named after the Roman deacon and martyr, comes up trumps with irresistible aromas of red cherry, marzipan, quinine, blood orange and mineral stones. Superbly nuanced on the palate with polished tannins, remarkable length and great elegance. San Lorenzo from Etna - a confession and one of many examples that the red wines from Etna can definitely keep up with the fine elegant representatives of Nebbiolo. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Cask sample. Just mid crimson. Minerally raspberry with iron hints and notes of orange skin. Concentrated yet really fine and with bags of powdery tannins that never overpower the fruit. Very long and poised. A real cru." Jancis Robinson

    "Wet stone, wild strawberries and nuances of sweet spice waft up from the 2017 Etna Rosso San Lorenzo. This pretty and soft-textured effort seduces with its ripe and fleshy red fruits and rosy inner floral tones. There's not a hard edge in sight, yet balance remains firmly intact as the 2017 leans more toward sour cherry and licorice through the long, dramatic finale." Vinous

    "The 2017 Etna Rosso San Lorenzo is beautifully balanced and bright. Indeed, San Lorenzo is often my favorite single-vineyard expression from Beppe Russo, although I preferred some of the other expressions in this unique vintage. The wine shows elegance and purity, all clearly within the context of a warm growing season that produced overripe aromas in many of the red wines made on Etna. This expression holds back in terms of that overt ripeness, stopping cautiously at black fruit, sweet spice and volcanic ash. Pull this one out for a grilled veal or pork dinner." Robert Parker
