ETNA ROSSO D.O.C.
Made from very fine Nerello Mascalese e Nerello Cappuccio from low yielding vineyards (35 Hl. for hectar), both young and old.
The grapes are macerated until the end of fermentation. The wine then continues its life in wood until bottled roughly one year after harvest.
Even young it is a distinguished wine. Fresh, fragrant, beautifully slender and with a fine grip, it has a natural polish, a stage presence, as it were. And, in aging, as its weave gathers into rich complexity, it is a wine for gentlemen.
