Wine tasting notes

Deep ruby-red in colour. Intense and complex nose, offering cherries, spices and herbs with a floral violet component. On the palate, generous concentrated flavours of ripe red fruits and sweet spices, brought together with balancing minerality. Creamy mouthfeel with a velvety prolonged finish. A fascinating and seductive wine!

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2013) - 92+ to 94 pts

Sept 15 - Monica Larner - The 2013 Etna Rosso Santo Spirito is an abundant and enriched expression from the darkened volcanic slopes of Mt. Etna Santo Spirito runs through parts of Passopisciaro at the heart of Etna's best production zones. This gorgeous wine opens to a dark garnet appearance with inkier colors of crimson and ruby. Crisp and crunchy tones of wild berry, cranberry, red rose and dark mineral characterize the mouthfeel. This was a difficult vintage that saw slow and uneven ripening for many producers. Marco De Grazia has evidently mastered when to harvest his fruit at optimal ripeness.


Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2013) - 90 pts

Vivid red. Captivating aromas of red cherry and sweet spices are complicated by floral and orange peel nuances. The cherry-cola and dried cranberry flavors are more deeply pitched than usual for this wine, which shows a building spiciness with aeration. Finishes tangy and long, with gentle tannins and noteworthy mineral lift. Until the 2006 vintage, these grapes were used to make the entry-level Etna Rosso wine, but then de Grazia bought the vineyard and started bottling a cru from the site.-- Ian D'Agata

June 2015 - alish ruby with broad, orange-tinged rim. Lovely inviting and multi-layered cherry-fruit nose with an exotic, spicy edge. Racy, red fruit with a firm structure. Ready now, and I wouldn't cling to it for too long. Wonderful depth and length. (WS)


Wine Spectator (2013) - 91 pts

Feb 2016 - A silky, minerally red, with dense tannins and a tightly knit profile of ripe black cherry, cured tobacco and hints of mocha and spice. This should open nicely with short-term cellaring and then go the distance from there. Best from 2018 through 2026


James Suckling (2013) - 93 pts

An Etna red with plum, cedar, flower and dried-orange aromas, following through to a full to medium body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. So pretty now.
