Eruzione 1614 Nerello Mascalese

Sicilia D.O.C.

100% Nerello Mascalese


The history of the volcano is marked by the eruptions which have shaped it.


That of 1614 is legendary; it lasted for 10 years, the longest ever recorded.


The vines which produce this wine grow on this actual lava flow.


Nerello Mascalese grown on these black soils at a height,

for an intensely aromatic red wine with an elegant structure.


Tasting notes :

 Luminous and trasparent ruby-red.

Vinification :


The grapes are picked into crates and immediately refrigerated at 10⁰C,

then selected by hand; after destalking they ferment at 25⁰C in stainless steel vats,

remaining on the skins for 21 days, with short stirrings;

they are pressed softly with the vertical press,

followed by malolactic fermentation in stainless steel,

the wine thus obtained matures in oak barrels for 12 months.
