Lush and fruity on the nose, with distinct spicy and balsamic nuances. On the palate, the wine has excellent volume, depth and structure -- great mouthfeel and finesse. Clean, consistent and lengthy finish.

The 2016 Etna Rosso Archineri is made with fruit from pre-phylloxera vines aged up to 90 years old. This is a finessed and nuanced expression from a vintage that threw a few curve balls to vintners on Etna where the climate and temperatures can change at the drop of a dime. The finish is shorter compared to vintages of the recent past, but this mid-weight red is very articulate in terms of its aromatic offerings. It shows small-berry aromas with lilac, spice and wild blueberry. Some 7,000 bottles were made.
