Product Description:

"The Etna is a totally different world wine-wise speaking, not only in comparison to the rest of Sicily but to the entire Mediterranean area. Here the warmth of the south of Italy meets the mists, the big thermal excursions, the abundant rain, there’s a bit of the Big North in these wines. You can feel all of this in the delicate fruity, herbal and berries notes, smoothened by the chestnut barrels where this wine “lives” for one year.

Sight/ Ruby Red, Shiny and Flowing.
Nose/ floral sensations of violet and fresh berries, followed by light herbal notes.
Mouth/ Tannie but not aggressive, well balanced by a clear and marked acidity and a fresh and persistent fruit.
Pairings/ Red Meat and Tuna tagliata, Roasted meat and fish. Brilliant with Nebrodi's cold cuts and sweet and sour dishes.
Notes/ A Must of the winery, The balance comes from the experience. Acidity and tannins on one side and fruits and minerals on the other. By aging it shows great character and balance. Easy Drinking but guaranteed for fifteen years from the harvest." - Winery
