James Suckling (92)- "Slightly reductive on the nose, but after a bit of air you are greeted with notes of crushed herbs, spiced plums and dried roses. Medium-bodied with underlying mineral character. Juicy and flavorful on the palate. Best after 2024."
Falstaff Magazine (92)- "Elegant, flinty pale ruby. A bit reductive on the nose at first, then cold smoke, almost bacon, reverberating with geranium. Dense and very juicy on the palate, also shows fine fruity-sweet components, seems nicely polished in the back, finishes with both juicy and salty."
Wine Advocate (92)- "The Cottanera 2019 Etna Rosso Diciassettesalme offers a lean and pure expression of Nerello Mascalese without too many extra bells or whistles. The wine finishes fermentation in oak and continues its evolution in large casks for eight months. There are dusty notes that frame cassis and sour cranberry. But both the fruity and the mineral sides of the wine are well-contained and measured. Diciassettesalme offers a highly drinkable and accessible side to Etna."
