Decanter, Dec 2016 & Bigger than Your Head, Nov 2016

Decanter – December 2016

In “Etna Rosso” – Andrea Briccarello, Michael Garner and Emily O’Hare review:

TENUTA DI FESSINA Il Musmeci Etna Rosso 2011 – 90 points

“The fruit here is impressive; hardly any signs of age. There are violets and blackberries on the palate on top of tarragon and woodsmoke, followed by some tannins.”



 Bigger than Your Head – November 4, 2016

In “A Red and a White from Etna,” writer Fredric Koeppel provides a short overview of the wines of Mount Etna, offering insight on the white and red grapes that are grown on the region’s volcanic soils. Recommended as a white wine to try:

TENUTA DI FESSINA Erse Etna Bianco 2014

“The Tenuta di Fessina Erse 2014 is a blend of 80 percent carricante grapes and a combined 20 percent catarratto and minnella…The color is medium straw-gold, a perfect introduction to heady aromas of straw, heather and meadow flowers, with notes of dried pears and apricots and hints of quince and ginger. The whole effect on the palate is bright, spare, dry transparent, saline and savory; flavors of roasted lemons and spiced pears and deeply spicy and driven by clean, vivid acidity and a touch of scintillating limestone edge.”
