Profumo di Vulcano starts with a small vineyard that dates back to the late nineteenth century, about one-half hectare of land on the northern slopes of Mount Etna at 600 metres above sea level, in the district of Feudo di Mezzo, a small hamlet in Passopisciaro, in the municipality of Castiglione di Sicilia. The altitude and north-facing position offer shelter from the strong winds of the sirocco, which is why the daily temperature ranges to around 28 °C in summer. These unique conditions ensure the grapes the longer maturation that develops their taste and complexity.
Trasparent vivid ruby red.
It offers rich aromas of blackcurrant, blueberry and raspberry to the nose, followed by citruys notes and ends on warm spicy notes of sandalwood and tobacco. There are persistent hints of aromatic herbs such as marjoram, caper and thyme.
It is rich but not too rounded to the palate, with decisive lively hints of tannin. The finnish is complex and lasting, with a big personality.
