Critical Acclaim

VN90 Vinous Jun 2021

"The 2018 Passorosso transports you to the ashen slopes of Etna with a display of crushed rocks, black raspberry, wild brush herbs and hints of smoke. It’s soft and understated, impressing more with its purity of fruit and lifting acidity, as a subtle layer of fine tannin collects upon the senses. This concludes structured with rosy inner florals and hints of strawberry. It may not be the most vibrant or flashy vintage of Passorosso, but it is remarkably pretty." (90 pts.)

RP90 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 29th Oct 2021

"This is the only Etna denomination wine in the Franchetti portfolio, and it is made with a selection of fruit from various vineyard sites on lava flows of different epochs. The 2018 Etna Rosso Passorosso opens to a lean garnet color with faded color intensity. Like the other wines from this vintage that saw problematic rain on some parts of Etna, this wine is thinner and tighter than some of the more generous vintages of the past. There are tart cherry flavors followed by ashy smoke and tar. Some 35,000 bottles were made." (90 pts.)

Italy

Italy is famous for its powerful, sleek, and elegant reds wines from ancient growing areas with legendary names such as Chianti, Barolo, Barbaresco, Montepulciano. Italian white wines are also gaining popularity: Orvieto, Pinot Grigio, and Sauvignon are excellent examples of Italian white wines.

Wines of Italy are complex and flavorful, much like the culture that is their source and the cuisine that is their match.
