This reserve red wine is produced from the best grapes grown on the lava terraces of the Monte Gorna vineyard. The blend is made predominantly of Nerello Mascalese grapes, the main native variety of Etna. The volcanic terroir gives this wine a unique character and a great minerality. The low yields in the vineyard, the hand-picking and the careful selection of the grapes make our Monte Gorna Riserva Etna Rosso a very elegant wine.
Ruby red with garnet highlights.
Floral hints, spicy notes and scents of licorice, rose hips, dried fruits; a very complex flavor profile that evolves further into the glass in elegant tertiary aromas.
On the palate displays an intact freshness and soft tannins, not yet entirely tamed; an elegant, structured, harmonious taste with a long finish.
