James Suckling (94)- "A very creamy and refined 2017 with black-cherry, chocolate and hazelnut aromas and flavors. Medium to full body with medium, round tannins and a savory finish. Drink or hold."
Wine Advocate (96)- "An impressive wine from the Cambria family of Cottanera. From a classic and balanced vintage, the 2016 Etna Rosso Riserva Zottorinoto is redolent of dark fruit and blackcurrant. The primary fruit is beautifully intact, and the wine's natural acidity serves to play up the brightness and the freshness of those flavors. Purple and black fruit tones cede to spice, tar, smoke and grilled herb. This is a mid-weight red, but don't underestimate its power and complexity. There is a lot of Etna typicity packed into this elegant bottle. Again, this is an impressive Etna red."
Wine Advocate (95)- "Cottanera's 2015 Etna Rosso Riserva Zottorinoto offers a beautiful level of purity and sharpness, with plenty of the electric energy and tightness you should expect of a great wine from Etna. This vintage offers some extra ripeness with fruity tones that veer toward plum and black cherry. But those fruit tones are reigned back by the defined mineral backbone of the wine that cedes to campfire ash and scorched earth. The 2015 fruit is a bit looser and thicker altogether. This wine should come together beautifully with a few more years of bottle aging. Only 1,900 bottles were made."
