“Cultivating a tradition.
After the experience of Profumo di Vulcano, I felt the need to produce a more accessible wine, to share the fruits of my labor with a greater number of people, both connoisseurs and simple wine lovers.
So I bought new vineyards on the northern slope, in the “denominazione di origine” area, in a beautiful district with a winemaking tradition more than two thousand years old.
It is from this sandy, rocky soil that my Etna Rosso was born. It is a wine that speaks the language of its country and embodies its spirit. A pure sip of authenticity.”

First, the grapes are harvested by hand. It then undergoes spontaneous fermentation with native yeast, refinement in steel for 12 months and 6 months of aging in bottle.
Bright, transparent and ruby red color.
A fragrant nose that opens with strawberry and raspberry notes and is soon embraced by a citrusy freshness of tangerine and a slight mineral touch.
Finally, there follows a nuance of white chocolate mixed with precious white pepper and cardamom.
Especially fresh and refreshing on the palate, with a lively and harmonious tannic perception. The finish is pleasantly clean and juicy, as well as appealing and lively.
Its versatility makes it an excellent companion for a variety of dishes: best drunk chilled with a turbot or grilled tuna. But also delicious to drink more classically with delicate white meats such as roast guinea fowl or veal chops.
