Vinous Media (89)- "The 2019 Etna Rosso Barbazzale keeps you coming back to the glass with a woodland-inspired display of wild berries, lavender, wet stone and undergrowth. It’s soft-textured and fleshy in feel, maintaining balance through a pure display of fresh strawberries laced with sweet spice and florals. Round tannins frame the expression nicely as the Barbazzale tapers off to a dusting of violet candies. This blend of 90% Nerello Mascalese and 10% Nerello Cappuccio is easy to like, showing quite well today, and it is a fantastic bargain."
James Suckling (91)- "An Etna red that's rich in primary fruit, this shows brambleberry pie, violet reduction and plum paste. Round and fruity on the medium-bodied palate with silky tannins. Drink now. "
James Suckling (92)- "Aromas of dried berries, walnuts, dried herbs and spices. Full-bodied, integrated and very fine with ultra-fine tannins. Rich, tight and balanced. A blend of nerello mascalese and nerello cappuccio. "
