MOFETE ETNA ROSATO
2017 Palmento Costanzo
100% Nerello Mascalese, from younger vines planted on black and brown volcanic sands at an altitude of 680-750m in the Contrada Santo Spirito, Passopisciaro. This is exactly what you'd hope for from a rosato from this grape, which has aromatic refinement, crisply defined mid-palate with excellent acidity and silky structure, with a lightly tannic tautness which will make it brilliant as a wine with all kinds of summer dishes. L&S (Apr 2018)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
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.
Do you tire of endless bottles of super-pale Provence rosé? Do you yearn for something different? Fancy some pink of a different provenance? He be the answer - a dozen bottles of rosé from elsewhere; a bit French, a bit Italian and a slightly funky Spanish organic pink.
