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 flavoursome aromas such as red fruit, herbs, spices and liquorice. On the palate, this volcanic wine is well-balanced, with refined tannins and a long balsamic finish.
Ruby red with garnet highlights due to ageing.
Expressive and elegant with notes of red fruit, herbs, spices and liquorice.
Warm, robust and lingering with a pleasant balsamic finish.
