Critical Acclaim

"The 2011 Etna Rosso Calderara Sottana is light in color but masculine in personality. It-s a tight, nervous wine that needs more time to evolve in the cellar. Pretty fruit tones of wild berry and cassis set the stage, leaving ample room for nuanced mineral expressions. The tannins are tight, but polished and should become finer with age. "
94 Points

"Aromas of dried fruits and smoked meats follow through to a full body, round tannins and a long, soft-textured finish. Beautifully velvety mouthfeel. Delicious now but better in 2014"
93 Points

"Open-knit and fresh, with crushed cherry, sandalwood and grilled herb notes framed by polished tannins that push through on the aromatic finish. Drink now through 2021. 750 cases made."
90 Points

"Bright red. Pungent red berry, flint and floral aromas on the perfumed nose. Then much sweeter and richer on the palate, with smooth red cherry and spice (cardamom, cinnamon, white pepper) flavors. Full and long, with a strong mineral quality."

Sicily was at one time more quantity focused than quality, and while it's still producing a great deal of wine, the quality coming out is much better. With poor soil (great for grapes), warm sunshine, little...
