Vulka Etna Rosso DOC

Rich aromas of red berry and spice with underlying violet notes. The palate is delicate yet complex - tannins give good structure and depth, layered with plum and bramble fruit characters, savoury hints and a touch of pepper.

Description

Vulkà Etna Rosso, blend of Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio, is an authentic expression of the terroir of Etna, but characterized by a unique combination of elegance and drinkability.

The Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio grapes are grown at 700m on the volcanic slopes of Mount Etna on soils very rich in minerals. The cool conditions give a long, slow growing season with the grapes being hand-harvested into crates in mid to late October.

The volcanic origin and the altitude of the vineyards give this wine a remarkable minerality and a great character.

The wine undergoes cold maceration for 24 hours and ferments at a controlled temperature (22-24°C) for approximately 10-15 days. Half is matured for 10 months in a combination of barriques and larger old oak casks.
