The famous native Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio grapes grown on high-elevation volcanic slopes of Mount Etna produce a rich and complex wine with a great minerality and flavor aromas such as red fruit, herbs, spices and licorice. On the palate, this volcanic wine is well-balanced, with refined tannins and a long balsamic finish.
Pairs well with flavorful pasta dishes, grilled meats and semi-aged cheeses.
The Nicosia “Cru” wines of Etna come from the Monte Gorna estate, located in the Trecastagni area, very close to the wine cellar. A red and a white wine, made with organic grapes, that authentically represent the great expression that this terroir and its native vines can offer. These DOC wines are the demonstration that on the volcano each slope, each area, each vineyard can produce wines with different characteristics, giving unique and unrepeatable sensations. The composition of the eruptive materials gave life to composite soils, often made up small sized pumice stones, known as "ripiddu", found mostly on extinguished volcanic cones such as Monte Gorna; thier elevated drainage capacity and their wealth of potassium paly an important role in balancing the grape's maturation process. Even the climate distinguishes the Etna area respect to the rest of Sicily. The average temperatures on the mountains are lower and the climate also changes depending on the slope and the alyitude. From a winemaking standpoint, the wine diurnal temperature range is fundamental, as it gives the wines their goog freshness and elegant aromas. Nerello Mascalese is a black grape hystorically prevalent on Etna, that takes its name from Mascali territory where it was selected a few centuries ago. This is the base of the Etna Rosso DOC, which must contain at least 80% of Nerello Mascalese grapes.
This classic Etna red has intense volcanic-lava character and an exciting interplay of fine tannins and restrained ripeness. More than enough red-cherry and redcurrant fruit to make this immediately appealing. Long, dry and mineral finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
