Ratings and awards
It is difficult to get mature Etna wines and this one is a beauty; it reminded me of an old-fashioned Barolo, which is not a surprise, given that Calabretta has been inspired by the classic wines of Conterno. I had two bottles of the 2007, both over two days, and the wines lasted well, even improving in the case of the second bottle. Delicious.by: NortonGrace (30/07/2017) - Vintage 2006
nose and mouth feel just transformed after some hours of opened bottle in the fridge. so many sweet aromas in the nose that one could expect a passito. beautiful colour and such a balanced taste, you would not want this to end. 11 years added artistic flavours to this artefact. bravo!by: Adrian latimer (05/11/2018) - Vintage 2007
lovely old vine mature Etna nerello mascalese
You can taste the old vines concentrated fruit, nicely mature and getting quite creamy with age. I don't usually drink 15% alcohol wines but here the fruit and body carry it and you cant taste the high alcohol. Good stuff.by: SE 32 (28/06/2018) - Vintage 2007
First try on NM
At perfect age to enjoy. Highly complex nose&palate, not that impressive finish, but overall reminds me mix of Barolo and Priorat.by: Lahache (17/06/2018) - Vintage 2007
