Critical Acclaim

RP92+ Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 29th Sep 2015

"From the Contrade Rampant at 1,000 meters above sea level, the 2012 Contrada R is a finely nuanced and elegant wine. This is one of the last sites on Etna to reach maturity and therefore this wine benefits from a longer growing season. It also sees more acidity and a firmer quality of tannins that makes this bottle appropriate for long cellar aging. Small berry fruit, bitter almond, pressed violets and crushed stone are part of the bouquet. You can feel that extra astringency in the mouth for sure. Give Contrada R a good five years to flesh out further." (92+ pts.)

SP92 Wine Spectator Feb 28, 2015

"The wild strawberry and red licorice flavors are juicy and expressive in this elegant and silky red, framed by refined tannins and fresh acidity, and accented in the background by anise, loamy earth, cured tobacco and sweet smoke notes. Nerello Mascalese. Drink now through 2028. 240 cases made." (92 pts.)

Italy

Italy is famous for its powerful, sleek, and elegant reds wines from ancient growing areas with legendary names such as Chianti, Barolo, Barbaresco, Montepulciano. Italian white wines are also gaining popularity: Orvieto, Pinot Grigio, and Sauvignon are excellent examples of Italian white wines.

Wines of Italy are complex and flavorful, much like the culture that is their source and the cuisine that is their match.
