MOFETE ETNA ROSSO
2017 Palmento Costanzo
|Grapes||Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappucio|
These wines are so distinct and bear the hallmark of their volcanic origin so beautifully. Crackling with energy and zip, the fruits are on the redder spectrum, bilberry, cherry and raspberry, undercut with a mineral intensity, mouthfilling, grippy and satisfying. Drinking range: 2021 - 2026 L&S (Jan 2021)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine 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.
