This ruby red Etna Rosso is delightfully intense with a generous helping of ripe, red fruit aromas and a softening touch of vanilla. The less tannic Nerello Cappuccio balances the higher tannins of the Mascalese and together produce a wine of both elegance and character, with a persistant finish.
A light ruby-coloured, vibrant red from Etna’s volcanic slopes. 80% Nerello Mascalese and 20% Nerello Cappuccio harmoniously blended and aged in 225-litre barriques for 8-10 months. Delightful ripe red cherry, cranberry and vanilla spice, with smooth tannins and a persistent yet refreshing finish
Decanter Magazine (Apr 2016)
Beautiful aromas of dried fruits such as strawberry and cherry. Spices and dried flowers. Full body with firm, silky tannins and a long, flavorful finish. A wonderfully firm, silky red from Etna. A blend of nerello mascalese and nerello cappuccio. Drink or hold.

Like most Etnean varieties, the Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio grapes are late ripening due to the range in diurnal temperature and the cooling effect of their high location at about 600 metres above sea level on the Northern slopes of the volcano. The fermentation period for the grapes lasts for 20-25 days in contact with the skins and in stainless steel tanks. After malolactic fermentation, the wine then matures in 225litre barriques for between 8 to 10 months, followed by a further 3 months of bottle refinement.
