Rebecca Meir-Liebman rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

A blend of 95% Nerello Mascalese and 5% Nerello Cappuccio, from one of my favourite regions in Italy – Etna Rosso – this dry wine is light-bodied with notes of red fruit and cherries, as well as some baked strawberries and rhubarb. Very low in tannin, with good acidity, this elegant and delicate alternative to any light Pinot Noir or Gamay Noir is great paired with lighter dishes such as: charcuterie, duck, and pink-fleshed fish. Quite delicious and good value for money, this is a rarity at the LCBO – grab it while you can!




Natalie's Review

Tornatore Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese Nerello Cappuccio 2015, Etna, Sicily D.O.C., Italy: This robust yet elegant Italian red wine is 95% Nerello Mascalese and 5% Nerello Cappuccio grapes. This Sicilian red wine is great with any game dish or sausage casserole. Tornatore has great backbone acidity and smooth tannins. Drink now and for the next five years. Dark, earthy, racy and rich with black cherry and smoke. Perfect volcanic wine. Pair with spicy sausages. Drink: 2018-2024. 487090 14% XD 750 mL  $22.95 Score: 92/100.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
