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.
An Italian Christmas or Natale is definitely something worth exploring and this case covers the length and breadth of this incredible country.
With fizz from Lombardy, tip top Nebbiolo from both Barolo and Barbaresco, Sangiovese from Chianti and Brunello and the stunning Nerello Mascalese from the slopes of Etna in Sicily, there is plenty to keep you royally entertained.
