Reds - available in stock now

Etna Rosso San Lorenzo 2018 -  $55
94 pts James Suckling 

Very complex aromas of dried berries and strawberries with orange peel, perfume and cherry. It’s full-to medium-bodied with a tight, linear palate and fine tannins, as well as zesty acidity. Give it time to open. Better after 2022.

Etna Rosso Moganazzi 2018 -  $49
95 pts James Suckling 

Complex aromas of ripe berries with toffee, cedar and some floral undertones. Hot ash as well. The palate is full-bodied, but tight and linear with a chewy palate and lots of dried-peach and orange-peel undertones to the ripe fruit, but always linear and focused. Try after 2022.

Etna Rosso Santo Spirito 2018 -  $49
95 pts James Suckling 

A tight, linear red, showing cherry, watermelon and orange-peel aromas with hints of violets. It’s medium-bodied with a solid center palate and a racy finish. Drink or hold.

Etna Rosso Calderara Sottana 2018 -  $59
96 pts James Suckling 

 So floral and fresh with cherries, watermelon, apples, crushed stone and flowers on the nose. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm tannins and fresh, vivid acidity that takes you down the palate. Drinkable now, but better in 2023.

Etna Rosso Feudo di Mezzo Il Quadro delle Rose 2018 -  $59
96 pts James Suckling

The purity of fruit and brightness is very impressive with blackberry, cherry and walnut undertones. It’s full, very tight and complete with really fine, polished tannins and a beautiful, long finish. Really balanced.
 Drink or hold.

Whites - arriving in March

Etna Bianco Santo Spirito 2019 - $39
95 pts  James Suckling

This is the most subtle and polished white from Etna I have had, offering a dense, integrated palate of apple, pineapple and stone character with some lemon grass and lemon curd. It’s dense and so focused with so much going on. Tight now, but promises a beautiful future. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. (Limited quantity on hand now, with more arriving in March.)

Etna Bianco Calderara Sottana 2019 - $39
94 pts James Suckling
A dense, layered white with dried apple, cooled lemon and some mineral and stone undertones. It’s full and deep. Creamy, layered palate. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. (This wine only arriving in March)
