Wine Advocate 88 points - The 2011 Etna Rosso Vigna Barbagalli was a difficult wine for me to score given the wide bottle variation I encountered. Fruit is sourced from 100-year-old vines planted without rootstock on the northern slopes of Etna at 900 meters above sea level. The wine is not completely transparent and the aromas take a few moments of aeration before they develop. There is dried fruit, cassis, mineral, ash, pressed rose petal and dusty earth. Dry tannins form a firm backbone that holds the wine together. It might just need a few years in the cellar to sort itself out. Drink 2016-2020. (May 2014)
