Darkly elegant and poised, the 2017 Etna Rosso Contrada Rampante slowly comes to life. Exotic spice scents emerge, mixed with smoky crushed stone, dried roses and black cherries. It’s silky-smooth with medium-bodied weight, complemented by bright acidity and a cooling mix of red and blue fruits. Sweet tannins and minerals mingle through the long, mouthwatering finale, leaving a lightly structured feel as inner violet florals slowly fade. This is incredibly pretty and already highly enjoyable, yet has short-term cellaring potential as well. Nicely done! 93 POINTS, WINE ENTHUSIAST

Attractive ripe berry, plum and spice aromas follow through to a medium to full body, chewy tannins and a powerful finish. Drink after 2021. 94 POINTS, JAMES SUCKLING
