91/100, Eric Guido, Vinous

We are delighted to have secured the delicious dry rosé wine from a baronial family estate situated high on the slopes of Sicily’s live volcano, Mount Etna. Scammacca Del Murgo Etna Rosato is sought after—so, on our Tasting Panel advice, we have snapped up cases for the Club Cellar to be sure Members don’t miss out.

The wine has a rare pedigree: it is made by Baron Emanuele Scammacca del Murgo, former Italian Ambassador and Foreign Affairs minister, who returned to his family’s traditional estate to concentrate on producing his family wines from vines—some original French varieties—on this extreme terroir. Altitude adds cool night-time temperatures to sun-soaked Sicilian days, lending wonderful freshness and aromatic complexity to the wines, while volcanic soils result in a distinct mineral character.

Awarding 91 points, Eric Guido of Vinous notes, ‘The 2022 Rosato Etna is a lovely pale pink. A delicately spicy blend of white cherries and mint forms its bouquet. This is round and soothing, with citrus-tinged acidity adding tension as saline minerals and savory herbs swirl throughout. Ginger and nectarine notes linger as the 2022 finishes impressively long.’

This is a family-owned, quality-focused boutique producer; distinctive, thought-provoking wines with a real sense of place; outstanding value for money. This delightful rosé wine is made with 100% Nerello Mascalese grapes. Its juicy and satisfying flavours of tart strawberry, pomegranate and blood orange tinged with salinity make it the perfect summer aperitif and it creates an excellent pairing for fish and for tomato-based dishes: it is perfect with seafood pasta.
