Song: Smoke on the Water by Deep Purple Quoting Mr Franchetti, the
visionary genius of Tuscan and then Sicilian wines: “Mt. Etna was a gloomy abandoned volcano. Wineries lay
collapsed all over its slopes; stonewalled terraces disappeared everywhere up the mountain in the bushes. There
was the misery of blackened streets and ashen churches in large old towns. It seemed crazy to restore vineyards so
high up the mountain – above, it was erupting – but I liked that they were planted so high.” Altitude, here between
450-1000 meters ASL, is the new frontier to fight climate change especially in the South of Italy: Mt. Etna is the
symbol of the renaissance of Sicilian wine. Temperature swings, ventilation, steepness of hillsides and an incredible
soil rich in lava and volcanic ashes are the perfect habitat for the vines(80-110 years old in this case!). The result is
good structure, complexity, minerality that leads to savory finish: aromas of ripe wild berry, blood orange,
Mediterranean scrub, eucalyptus, flint. A monument to Nerello Mascalese and to a magic smoking Volcano, symbol
of this enchanting region. 100% Nerello Mascalese. 2bts. Drink 2020-2024. Open 2h before.
