93 POINTS: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"There are fragrant red fruits on the nose, which is still reserved. The attack is intense and sleek, with lifted red fruits and tannins that are assertive but polished. Spicy and linear, it’s also grainy and very persistent. Admirable purity here"
"The 2013 Etna Rosso Rovittello is 90% Nerello Mascalese and 10% Nerello Cappuccio from vineyards in the Contrade Dafara and Galluzzo in the Rovittello subzone of Castiglione di Sicilia. This is a beautiful wine from the Benanti family and one of my favorite wines of the bunch. The finish is silky and long, and this vintage exhibits a very concise and clear sense of aromatic and tannic precision. Elegant mineral tones appear on the long, silky finish. This was a difficult vintage, and the wine is more streamlined and sharp as a result. But it should hold well in your cellar"
