Herbal and cedary on the nose, more intense than the Mofete. Even more herbal on the palate, wild grasses and a sour-citrus freshness. Long, dry and salty on the finish. Drinking range: 2019 - 2023 Rating: 16.5 Julia Harding MW, www.JancisRobinson.com(May 2019)

Palmento Costanzo

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.
