    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    I am puzzled by the 2017 Etna Rosso 'a Rina, a wine I know well and have long admired. There's a note of oak spice, carpentry or wood shop that feels a bit too prominent and unhinged this warm vintage. It's almost as if the wine doesn't have enough fruit fiber to iron out the secondary aromas that come from oak aging. I am distracted by cinnamon, clove and toasted cardamom seed. There's an exotic quality to the wine that reminds me of waxed Indian furniture. The wine scores well next to any generic red from Etna, but I hold the excellent wines of Girolamo Russo to a much higher standard.
