Falstaff Magazine (93)- "Elegant, bright ruby red. Delicate, red berry nose, with a hint of sea salt, cold smoke, iron aftertaste and light earthy notes. Dense and firm on the palate, shows powerful, tight tannins, hearty, extends over the tongue for a long time, earthy finish."
Wine Advocate (94)- "This is a beautiful wine that is very representative of what a red wine from Etna should look and taste like. This classic rendition, the 2016 Etna Rosso Feudo di Mezzo, shows medium-thick fiber and impressive depth. This is a direct and incisive wine that hits the palate with lovely intensity and sharply defined angles. Compared to Cottanera's Etna Rosso Diciassettesalme, this wine is taller, broader and speaks in a louder voice. I tasted the open bottle again the next morning, and the wine was even softer, more fleshed out and delicious. About 8,000 bottles were produced."
Falstaff Magazine (93)- "Powerful, shining ruby garnet. Opened with earthy-metallic notes, with ripe plums and some wild raspberries. Substantial and powerful on the palate, lots of gripping, hearty tannins, pronounced earthy notes in the finale."
