      The red Archineri from Nerello Mascalese grapes presents itself full of character and elegantly. Very refined bouquet of currants and wild berries, plus hints of dog roses, stone fruit and ethereal aromas. Very exquisite, very juicy, tasty and long. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Aromas of woodland berry, Mediterranean scrub, camphor and oak-driven spice shape the nose on this fragrant red. On the tight palate, firm acidity accompanies raspberry jam, orange zest, vanilla and licorice. Firm, grainy tannins leave a puckering, drying close. Give the tannins a few years more years to relax a bit then drink." Wine Enthusiast

      Contrada Rampante with a finely woven bouquet of dark red cherries, flowers, mint and liquorice. Fresh and lively on the palate, with a memorable blend of ethereal sweetness, filigree acidity and interesting salinity. A contemplative drop that requires a certain amount of experience and patience to be fully discovered. Pre-Phylloxera = from rootless vines! SUPERIORE.DE

    • "Vigna Barbagalli" Rosso Etna DOC 2016

      “Vigna Barbagalli” Rosso Etna DOC 2016

      The pure, autochthonous Nerello Mascalese from over 100 year old (rootless) vines starts off in sparkling ruby garnet and continues with an enchanting raspberry aroma, followed by fine spice notes (ginger, allspice, clove). Compact, dense, full-fruity, tannic on the palate, always highly elegant and smooth. Traces of salt and flint on the finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "To have drunk this red wine once in a lifetime is a privilege. It grows on the northern flank of Etna in an overgrown plot of land lined with lava at an altitude of 900 metres. The ancient knotty vines - Nerello Mascalese - date back to before the phylloxera. The fruit is Burgundy, the tannin (still) rough. Roasted plums, leather, Mon Chéri, this is how one could describe the taste. Best not to open for two or three years. Dr. Jens Priewe (weinkenner.de)

      "Aromas of cherries and blackberries with tea, as well as spice and almond undertones. Full-bodied, chewy and tannic with dried-berry, mineral, pumice and charcoal undertones to the fruit flavors. Burnt citrus, too. A powerful and structured red from ancient vines." James Suckling

      "Always one of my favorite wines from Etna, the 2016 Etna Rosso Barbagalli represents another terrific installment to this top-shelf expression from Michele Faro and the team at Pietradolce. From ancient pre-Phylloxera vines in a small amphitheater-shaped vineyard near the highest part of the appellation, this wine is marked by a subtle softness and richness of texture that you don't always find in high-altitude old vines. The wine demonstrates, without a shadow of doubt, that these vines still have loads of energy and electricity running though that old wood. I like to imagine that the vines' root systems tap into the heart of the volcano, soaking up that enormous power and intensity and delivering it to your glass." Robert Parker

    • "Sant'Andrea" Carricante Terre Siciliane IGT 2016

      “Sant’Andrea” Carricante Terre Siciliane IGT 2016

      The Carricante grapes of this extremely rare Etna Bianco come from vine blue resistant (pre-phylloxera) vines of a single vineyard of the Etna East slope from 800m altitude. Only one oak barrel is filled each year, the result is less than 2,000 bottles per vintage.

      Rich golden yellow with amber accents. Complex and well structured scent of herbs, yellow fruits and flint. In the mouth an indescribable depth with a salty note, fresh fruit and a mineral persistence. In the finale firm and precise, the tension bow is perfectly worked and the long lasting impression is unique! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Luminous orange-tinged pink. Perfumed floral nuances complicate strawberry and orange liqueur aromas. Then similar flavors to the aromas in the mouth, characterized by a strong spicy gingery note. Finishes long and dense; this powerful wine is not shy in the flavor or alcohol department (14%) but has a slow-building quality that is very likeable. Made from 100% Nerello Mascalese grown at 700 meters above sea level." Jancis Robinson

      "A pure expression of Carricante from pre-Phylloxera vines (with a precious 1,800 bottles made), the 2016 Sant'Andrea displays the depth and structural firmness this Sicilian grape is capable of producing when given time to evolve in the bottle (over 18 months, in this case). Extended skin maceration (with up to ten months of skin contact) adds to the incredible intensity and generous volume of the wine. It opens to an off-gold color and a robust texture that underscores the snappy crunchiness of the grape skins and the fullness of its vinous texture. This grape is not naturally associated with thickness or power, but both are elegantly achieved here. This is a beautifully assembled and contemplated wine that seeks to raise the bar for Etna's versatile Carricante." Robert Parker

      The pure, autochthonous Nerello Mascalese from over 100 years old (root true) vines starts with a sparkling ruby garnet and continues with an enchanting raspberry aroma, followed by fine spicy notes (ginger, pimento, clove). Compact, dense, full fruity, tannic on the palate, always very elegant and smooth. Traces of salt and flint in the finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Love the rich aromas of dried fruits (like dried strawberries). Hints of cedar and sandalwood as well. Full-bodied, layered and tannic with fantastic depth and intensity. Needs two or three years to soften. Beautiful wine. From vines planted on Etna hillsides 80 to 100 years ago!" James Suckling

      "A firm, tightly knit red, showing good density to the ripe black cherry and raspberry fruit, dried fig flavors and ashy mineral details. Fresh and fragrant, with violet and spice box notes. This should open nicely with air or cellaring." Wine Spectator

      "Here is one of my favorite Etna overachievers. The 2013 Etna Rosso Vigna Barbagalli was born in a more-challenging vintage here on the volcano, but it sails smoothly through any possible weakness. This is a magnificent expression from Southern Italy. The wine has the mild consistency and light garnet color of a Burgundian Pinot Noir. But the bouquet is anything but understated. It delivers powerful aromas of wild berry, balsam herb, licorice and those distinctive touches of volcano ash. In the mouth, the wine shows smooth and long silkiness. This is a magnificent red wine from Etna." Robert Parker
