THE WINE ADVOCATE (Robert Parker) Rating: 92 points - Drink Date: 2018 - 2028
Reviewed by: Monica Larner, Issue Date: 28th Dec 2018, Source: 240, The Wine Advocate - "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."
