"S" is for Sciaranuova, a contrade named after its "new lava flow." The 2017 Contrada S shows some nice fruit, cherry in particular, with drying volcanic and ashen tones at the back. Smoke, tar and licorice rise like fumes from the elegant bouquet. There is anote of white pepper as well that you get in some Etna reds, especially old vines of Nerello Mascalese with a tiny bit of Nerello Cappuccio planted within. MONICA LARNER, Wine Advocate

Eucalyptus, Mediterranean herb and wild berry aromas mingle with a whiff of wet stone. It's full bodied and youthfully austere but also boasts a weightless elegance, doling out black cherry, flinty mineral and bitter almond sensations before a licorice close. (95) KERIN O'KEEFE, Wine Enthusiast
