Case of 6 bottles.
The first vintage of this wine, from a tiny plot of land on the east side of Mount Etna at about 500m above sea level. Soils are of volcanic origin, primarily sandy, and rich in fossils and organic material. Grapes are harvested by hand and yields are low.
The blend is 80% Nerello Mascalese and 20% Nerello Cappuccio; vinified in temperature controlled (at low temperatures), stainless steel tanks. The wine is then aged in stainless steel tanks for three months (in contact with the fine lees) then in bottle for one month before release. Alc./vol. 13.0%. Only 1600 bottles produced.
Tasting note: Pale pink colour, with aromas and flavours of fresh berry fruit - raspberry, wild strawberry - with floral/fruity notes. Light- to medium-bodied, good acidity, soft tannins, and a long, clean finish.
Pairing suggestions: A great aperitif wine, it will also pair with appetizers, seafood, spicy vegetarian dishes, and fresh cheeses.
