"Sporting one of my all-time favorite labels in Italian wine (with an etching of an exploding Etna), the 2018 Etna Rosso is a mid-weight red with smoky and tarry aromas that intermingle with red fruit, cassis and toasted almond. You also get blue flower and wild rose, but of course, those volcanic signatures are what gives this wine its compelling raison d'ĂȘtre." (WA)

"Watermelon and citrus fruit come through here on the nose and palate, as well as some pumice. Medium to full body. Fine tannins and a fresh finish. Drink now." (JS)
