Critic Reviews

“Deep Ruby color; smooth, lush and ripe with black raspberry and cherry fruit; dense and rich with balance and juicy style long and lovely.”

91 points, James Suckling
“Earthy and spicy with dried watermelon and citrus fruit on the nose and palate. Medium to full body and a tangy, chewy finish. Drink from 2020.”

91 points, Vinous
“Deep ruby. Perfumed violet/red berries deploy a strong, mineral bent. Multilayered and deep but fresh, with precise flavors of red fruit, tobacco and black tea leaf, this showcases smooth tannins and very harmonious acidity. The finish is long and floral.”

91 points, Wine Enthusiast
“Aromas of smoky flint, leather, red berry and brown spice mingle with whiffs of game and rusty iron. The aromas follow over to the firmly structured but linear palate along with ripe Marasca cherry, orange zest and carob. Tight, dusty tannins and mineral tension provide the framework.”

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.
