Today’s wine comes from one of Sicily’s all-time great wineries, and the special volcanic soils of Mt. Etna. The Tornatore family have been in Sicily since the 1680s and have been making wine there since 1865.
They are titans in the region and considered one of the most consistently excellent producers. Their wines are known for capturing the essence of Etna, the complexity, the freshness and the vibrant expressions that come from this ashy, volcanic and super mineral-rich soil.
The Tornatores make two great Etna Rossos each year, their base Etna and the ‘Pietrarizzo’ their single-vineyard expression that comes from a super high altitude plot where there is more rainfall, moderating breezes and cooler temperatures at night. These unique conditions when combined with ample Sicilian sun, and mineral rich soil, make for an incredibly concentrated, complex and expressive Red – which is why it’s always one of the highest rated Rossos in Etna each year.

Spice and dried seaweed with ash and earth on the nose, as well as red fruit. Full-bodied with medium, round tannins and a savory finish. Dusty at the end. Delicious now, but will age nicely.
93 Points, Wine Spectator
A graceful, medium-bodied red, with bright acidity and fine, creamy tannins, which buoy a pleasing range of baked strawberry, star anise, graphite and red licorice notes. A subtle overtone of herbs and mineral pushes through and lingers on the lightly chewy finish. Drink now through 2032.
