About the Wine
Critic Reviews
96 points, Blue Lifestyle
“Floral, lush and ripe, deep and complex; a stunning sequel to last year’s Tre Bichieri winner; silky, elegant and showing tropical fruit and citrus; a remarkable wine.”

“Bright medium dark yellow. Savory herbs, quince, minerals and balsamic oils on the nose and in the mouth, tactile and round but with a whiplash of acidity rising on the suave finish that also features earthy and balsamic notes.”

“Cooked-apple and lemon aromas follow through to a full body with creamy texture and fruit. Lemon-curd and cooked-apple flavors. Drink now. ”

90 points, Wine Enthusiast
“Mediterranean scrub, Spanish broom, orange zest, toast and wet stone aromas form the nose. Elegantly structured, the palate offers lemon peel, yellow apple and toasted almond before a saline finish. It’s bright in fresh acidity. ”
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.
