Wine Spectator: 93 Points

Violet and spice box notes waft from the glass of this round, lightly chewy red, with a fragrant skein winding through flavors of crushed cherry and strawberry fruit and hints of loam and chocolate. Fresh and lingering on the smoke-tinged finish. Drink now through 2033. 332 cases made, 125 cases imported. 

Wine Advocate: 91 Points

From the Contrada Chiappemacine that is lower on the Etna elevation scale at just 550 meters above sea level, the 2018 Contrada C offers a fine and floral interpretation of Nerello Mascalese. This delicate and graceful wine has underlined aromas of wild rose and pressed violet. There are plenty of earthy and ashy aromas as well that frame a core of sour cherry and tart cassis. But like these other Franchetti wines from the challenging 2018 vintage, the mouthfeel is leaner, lighter and ultimately shorter in this edition of 3,990 bottles.
