    "Contrada Rampante" Rosso Etna DOC 2016

    Contrada Rampante with a fine 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 an interesting salt note. A contemplative drop that requires a certain amount of experience and patience to be fully discovered. Pre-Phylloxera = from root true vines! SUPERIORE.DE

    "Promising scent of cherries and macchia; precise course with notes of berries, sprays with minerality. Beautiful food companion." Vinum

    "Sparkling ruby garnet with bright rim. Attractive nose of ripe cherries and blackberries, with rhubarb. "Fabric, dense-meshed tannin, builds up in many layers, a little rough in the finale. Falstaff

    "Pale ruby. Distinct, heady cherry nose. Supple and elegant yet intensely flavoured and with fine, long tannins. Perfumed, long, sweet cherry finish." Jancis Robinson

    "Citrus peel acidity enlivens the dried cherry and cranberry fruit flavors of this balanced, medium-bodied red, underscored by a rich vein of tarry mineral and wild herb notes. Creamy tannins firm the lingering finish." Wine Spectator

    "Bright red. Reticent aromas of red cherry, Oriental spices, roses, plum nectar and soy sauce on the brooding nose. Floral and fresh in the mouth, with hints of Oriental spices and tobacco complicating ripe, thick plum and cherry flavors. Less immediately fruity and more tannic than the Santo Spirito, as it should be given the characteristics of these two crus. The finish is long, juicy and a touch austere for its current tannic clout. Needs time." Vinous

    "The 2016 Etna Rosso Contrada Rampante shows girth and power to the mid-palate. This is a dense and fleshed-out red wine from Etna made with fruit from 90-year-old vines. However, like other expressions from this vintage, I found there to be a lot of immediate intensity up front, with less persistence and fiber in the long run. This seems to be a shared characteristic of 2016. Some 5,000 bottles were made." Robert Parker
