2013 Etna Rosato – 89 Points – Robert Parker Wine Advocate (#212 May 2014)
"Part of a growing wine trend, the 2013 Etna Rosato is made from Nerello Mascalese and is highly indicative of the excellent rose wines now being made on Etna. The wine opens to a pale pink color with copper and peach highlights. It is packed tight with bright fruit nuances of white cherry and stone fruit that are delivered with extreme precision and focus. Background notes of dried sage and crushed mineral offer subtle complexity. I highly recommend this wine for those looking for a crisp, dry and mineral-driven rose to pair with seafood or light salad lunches." ~ M.L.
