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.
