Ratings and awards
It is difficult to get mature Etna wines and this one is a beauty; it reminded me of an old-fashioned Barolo, which is not a surprise, given that Calabretta has been inspired by the classic wines of Conterno. I had two bottles of the 2007, both over two days, and the wines lasted well, even improving in the case of the second bottle. Delicious.
nose and mouth feel just transformed after some hours of opened bottle in the fridge. so many sweet aromas in the nose that one could expect a passito. beautiful colour and such a balanced taste, you would not want this to end. 11 years added artistic flavours to this artefact. bravo!
lovely old vine mature Etna nerello mascalese
You can taste the old vines concentrated fruit, nicely mature and getting quite creamy with age. I don't usually drink 15% alcohol wines but here the fruit and body carry it and you cant taste the high alcohol. Good stuff.
First try on NM
At perfect age to enjoy. Highly complex nose&palate, not that impressive finish, but overall reminds me mix of Barolo and Priorat.
Really like this wine!
Really enjoyed this wine! Easy to drink but also gives you good deeph and substance, great to drink now. A good buy!
