From the San Francisco Chronicle: "This second vintage of Paolo Caciorgna's Sicilian project has a tiny production, around 3,600 bottles. It comes from several old-vine plots on Etna's northern slopes that reach up to 2,400 feet. A wonderfully exotic nose: tamarind, coriander and fenugreek, with tar and a fine-boned mineral presence. Delicate, bright red fruit and a quietly tannic profile. Beautifully refined."

“The 2006 Etna Rosso N’Anticchia is an intriguing, eccentric bottling
from the Etna and producer Pietro Caciorgna. This mid-weight red offers
up dried cherries, mint, sweet herbs, earthiness and tobacco in a silky,
ethereal style that recalls a traditionally made Pinot Noir or
Nebbiolo. Although the wine reveals some rough edges, it remains
fascinating to contemplate. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2016.” — The Wine
