Light in color and in taste, but it's a Nerello Mascalese you can easily recognize. #DWCC #Etnawinelover

Named after historic Etna eruption which lasted ten years. Vineyard is in the path of centuries old lava flow.

Initial fruit gives quickly way to volcanic minerality and salinity. Quite pinot noir like.

One first noticed it’s luminous and trasparent ruby-red...

...the sweetness and generosity of wild fruits and currants merges with aromas of incense and beeswax and a light almost salty touch invites one to return to one’s glass, creating an almost provoking temptation to taste...

...once in mouth, the 100% Nerello Mascalese from lava sands presents its tasting strength and extraordinary aromas of incense and herbs, hibiscus, and wild fennel.

It’s a luminous and lyrical wine which recounts without obstacles the character and refinement of great red mountain wines but at latitudes not far from Africa....

The elegant tannins of compact texture are presented with extraordinary refinement.
