Etna Rosso comes from vineyards rich in volcanic rock and sand, with a smaller proportion of limestone. The most established nerello mascalese vines date back to the 1970s. Thanks to its location near the Alcantara River and on the northern slopes above 500 meters, the grapes find the perfect conditions here to ripen together. The grape harvest takes place manually in the early morning hours, after which the grapes are brought to the cellar in small baskets so as not to bruise the grapes during transport. The fermentation takes place with carefully selected yeasts at 23°C and takes about 10 days. The wine then matures for 18 months in large wooden barrels of 500 and 700 liters, after which a further 6 months' bottle aging takes place. In the scent you will find a palette of dried thyme, cherries and a clean and subtle earthy-smoked touch. The tasting reveals a rich blend of dried cherries and spices, characterized by a delicate balance between fruity notes and acidity. This wine is best served in a Burgundy glass. Hello!
