About This Wine

Plenty of spicy cinnamon oak over raspberry, cherry and red flowers, stone and smoke. It’s fresh and packed with raspberry/red cherry, with plenty of pepper and pumice stone tannin, shows warmth of alcohol in its medium bodied frame, and finishes firm and fairly long, with sweetness of oak and meat trailing in the distance.

Wine Spectator – Lovely spice and graphite notes lace the plumped cherry, red licorice, iron and smoke flavors of this fresh, finely balanced, medium-bodied red. A crowd-pleaser.

James Suckling – Extremely aromatic red with dried flowers, cream, citrus and plums. Hint of pumice, too. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a delicious finish. So drinkable now, but better in 2020.

Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – The 2016 Etna Rosso Archineri is made with fruit from pre-phylloxera vines aged up to 90 years old. This is a finessed and nuanced expression from a vintage that threw a few curve balls to vintners on Etna where the climate and temperatures can change at the drop of a dime. The finish is shorter compared to vintages of the recent past, but this mid-weight red is very articulate in terms of its aromatic offerings. It shows small-berry aromas with lilac, spice and wild blueberry.
