Aging: Aged in stainless steel for at least 6 months on it’s fine lees with frequest pump over.
Tasting Notes: Beautiful pale pink color, with the coppery tinges typical of Nerello Mascalese. Aromas of red fruit, undergrowth and floral fragrances. The flavor is intense, delicate, intriguing, enveloping, fresh and passionate.
Vineyard Notes: The soil is volcanic in origin, of varying depths. It has a sub-acid reaction and is rich in organic substances. Soil texture is loamy-sandy, with an abundance of skeleton grains in certain areas of the vineyard.
Soils are generally fertile, well-drained and with excellent root exploration. Cover crops of leguminous and/or grass species have been grown since 2007.
Production Notes: Gentle cold cryomaceration and soft pressing, cold fermentation. Annual production: 700/2000 bottles.
Winemaker Notes: For the summer solstice, we focus on rosé. A fresh Nerello rosé, fragrant but with good structure, to be drunk on late summer afternoons, in the shade of a portico, perhaps accompanied by a nice bruschetta with pachino tomatoes, basil and anchovies. Poured into the glass, its colour is delicate but bright pink, and it offers floral hints and notes of red fruit and undergrowth.
Food Pairing: Traditional Etna cuisine, fresh cheeses
