This product is currently sold out.
The famous native Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio grapes grown on high-elevation volcanic slopes of Mount Etna produce a rich andcomplex wine with a great minerality and appealing aromas.
Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio grapes are grown on volcanic soils, very rich in minerals, at an altitude of 700-750 m above sea level, with good range of temperature between day and night. Grapes are hand harvested at the end of October. Maceration takes place for approximately 10-15 days at a controlled temperature of 24-26°C. Vinification takes place mainly in stainless steel vats, 50% of the wine stays 5-6 months in barrique and 3-4 in large oak casks; the ageing is completed by a stay of 6 months in the bottle.
Delicately perfumed and ethereal with complex aromas of wild raspberry, leather and dried petals. On the palate restrained red berry fruit, notes of dried herbs and liquorice and refined tannins, lead to a long balsamic finish.
Great with rich pasta dishes, roasted game, grilled meats and semi-aged cheeses.
