About

Product Description:

"Throughout my many years covering Italian wine, this is one of the most beautiful sites I have ever had the honor to visit. That otherworldly beauty - with volcanic stone walls, knotted pre-phelloxera vines, cherry trees and wild flowers with little shrines to the Madonna peeping through the vines - is forever etched in my memory. Guardiola is among my favorite Etna Contrade. " -Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

"At 800-1000m on the north side of Mount Etna, the Guardiola cru is one of the highest vineyards in Europe. The vines are almost all pre-phylloxera with the exception of a few which have been individually replanted. Training is traditional gobelet with tight spacing, steep and terraced, which means the vineyards have to be worked by hand. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation and aging in French oak. The wine is bottled after 18 months of oak aging." -Importer
