Critic Reviews
93 points, Vinous
"Deep red-ruby. Flamboyant aromas of plum, chestnut and violet with high-pitched notes of spicy plum sauce. Sweet, ripe and expansive but also very pure and clean on the palate, this medium-bodied wine is tangy and penetrating today. Closes long and suave with lively acids but avoids coming off as hard. Lovely stuff."

“Mediterranean brush and exotic spice aromas combine with whiffs of wet stone and wild herbs on this 100% Nerello Mascalese. The aromas march on to the palate together with ripe Marasca cherry, licorice and dried mint. Taut but lithe tannins and bright acidity provide support. Drink through 2026.”
About The Winery
In 2007, Silvia Maestrelli founded Tenuta di Fessina in the village of Rovittello on the northeastern side of Mt. Etna. They have 17 acres of vineyards in Rovittello (2,200 feet) and 6 acres between Milo and Santa Maria di Licodìa (3,280 feet). These vineyards are located on different sides of the mountain in order to produce the best expressions of the indigenous varietals. There has also been a strong focus on hospitality: Seven rooms for guests were built inside a 17th century structure on the property. In collaboration with winemaker Federico Curtaz, Maestrelli has created, in just 10 years, one of the most successful and recognizable cellars in the Etna area and has become an exemplary ambassador of new Sicilian viticulture.
