MOFETE ETNA ROSSO
2015 Palmento Costanzo
|Grapes||Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappucio|
80% Nerello Mascalese 20% Nerello Cappuccio. The Nerello Mascalese dominates this traditional blend which has only medium colour depth, but so much flavour - the classic spicy fruit and herby, spicy volcanic notes with a long refreshing sappy finish. L&S (Feb 2018)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Relatively pale red in colour, as befits Etna Rosso, this Nerello Mascalese-dominated blend from the slopes of Mount Etna shows delicately succulent red fruit flavours, a cross almost been Pinot Noir and Nebbiolo, yet with a characteristic herbal note all its own and that trademark volcanic Etna bite on the finish. Pairs nicely with: Lamb cutlets, pork belly. Rating: 90-90 The Wine Gang - www.thewinegang.com(Mar 2019)
A property of 14 hectares in Contrada Santo Spirito, Passopisciaro, on the northern slopes of Etna. 10 hectares are planted with vines on walled terraces on volcanic rocks between 600-800 metres altitude. The Costanzos came here in 2011 - they are from Catania - and meticulously restored the palmento (the word for the olive millstone which gave the farm its name). The vineyards are planted employing the ‘gobelet' method and farmed organically. The 2017’s are certified organic. This is an amazing new project which has been given all the investment and attention it needed to make great wines from the outset.
