About the Wine:

A winery founded to explore the southern slope of Etna, with the purpose of searching for vineyards that express elegance and complexity thanks to the nature of the soil and the sunlight that characterizes these places. Today, they own approximately 52 acres of vineyards, between 2,000 and 2,600 feet elevation, in the village of Belpasso & Biancavilla. The grape varieties currently planted are Carricante, Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio. The 2017 is the first vintage of IDDA Etna Rosso.
