91 points - James Suckling

This Etna Bianco is made with the indigenous grape Carricante aged in concrete vats. The wine offers pleasant hints of grapefruit, white peach and herbs on the nose. The palate has a lovely texture and freshness complemented by an extraordinary minerality.

Pairing suggestion: It is perfect with young and medium-aged cheeses, poultry and fish.

4 bottles x Tornatore Etna Rosato DOC 2021 (Sicily, Italy)
Rosato | Nerello Mascalese

This is a shining, deeper-hued rose of nerello mascalese, from Castiglione di Sicilia, on Etna's northern slopes. With just a few hours of skin time giving a glowing crimson, this was fermented and aged for a short stint in stainless to preserve the fresh fruit.

Juicy wild raspberry, red berries, wild orange, lemon peel livens the medium-bodied, saline palate. Ample Etna minerality and freshness give a vibrancy to the palate, finishing long and salty.

Pairing suggestion: Perfect as an aperitif, or try it with traditional Indian dishes to complement the spice and intensity.

4 bottles x Tornatore Etna Rosso DOC 2019 (Sicily, Italy)

Red | Nerello Cappuccio, Nerello Mascalese

93 points - Wine Enthusiast
92 points - James Suckling
91 points - Vinous

The Etna Rosso has notes of red berries, morello cherry and black cherry on the nose. Mediterranean herbs and white pepper framed in glossy tannins and fresh acidity. The palate is characterized by a surprising fullness, flavour and persistence.

Pairing suggestion: Etna Rosso is very food friendly and versatile. It can be paired perfectly with a wide variety of dishes. Tomato sauces are a natural pairing for this wine; but it also goes great with roasted meats, sausages, meatballs; and oily fish like smoked sardines.

About the Winery

Azienda Agricola Tornatore

Out of a Sicilian family heritage that traces back to the 17th century, the Tornatore’s Mount Etna wine ventures began in 1865. Today the family’s operations are headed by Giuseppe Tornatore, a businessman whose expertise led to the acquisition of some of the region’s finest north-facing vineyards in the early 2000’s. That heritage and the Tornatore’s profound respect and understanding of the land is showcased in wines that capture the essence of Etna, deftly balancing concentrated flavors, complexity, freshness and refinement.

The company lies in the northern side of Mount Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe. The soils have volcanic origin and were created through the disintegration of lava, ash and stones from previous volcanic eruptions. The climate on the northern side of the Etna is characterized by mild temperatures, and more rain fall reflecting the influence of the Volcano. The combination of soil, climate and the skill of the winemakers, have made the northern slope of Etna an ideal area for the production of high-quality wines. “Our vineyards and our winery are only a few kilometers from our family home. Our entire family is rooted there. We have the greatest respect for this region, and we believe we have a responsibility to be stewards of Etna and to reflect its distinct character in our wines.” - Giuseppe Tornatore
