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 (94)- "The 2017 Etna Rosso Riserva Zottorinoto is a beautiful wine that shows enormous elegance and medium fruit weight. It delivers plenty of texture and intensity that is never overplayed. The tannins are on the dry side in the sunny 2017 vintage, but there is generous dark fruit, wild berry, tarry spice and campfire ash. The wine needs a few more years to flesh out and integrate."
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."
