Murgo Tenuta San Michele Etna Rosso 2018 / 750 ml.

Item#: 60045

RP8787 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Jun 2023
Made with 100% Nerello Mascalese, the 2018 Etna Rosso Tenuta San Michele shows cool-vintage aromas of wild fruit, caper and Mediterranean bramble. There are hints of earthiness and campfire ash, but the wine feels brittle or fragile overall with tight tannins. Fruit is selected from across 26 hectares of vines with sandy volcanic soils. Production is 9,000 bottles. (Monica Larner)

Pretty plum and raspberry fruit flavors are accented by a fine, aromatic thread of dried thyme, smoky mineral and rosehip in this harmonious, light- to medium-bodied red. Drink now through 2024. 2,080 cases made, 105 cases imported. (Alison Napjus)

As if you can smell the ashen volcanic soils that these vines grow in, the 2018 Nerello Mascalese Eruzione 1614 wafts up smoky and musky, with a complement of cherry and dried strawberry that fully completes the experience. This is soft and fleshy in feel, boasting a noticeable inner sweetness nicely balanced by brisk acids and pretty inner florals. The 2018 lacks the persistence and structure to promote long-term cellaring, but makes up for it with sheer drinkability. (Eric Guido)

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.

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.
