Volcanic Wines

The most exciting and intriguing wines coming out of Italy have one thing in common: the volcanic origins of their soils. The Etna D.O.C. region is situated on the north, east and south slopes of the Etna volcano.

Etna-Rosso-267x1024

This beautiful wine is produced at Feudo di Mezzo winery, situated in the heart of Etna viticulture. It comes from Nerello Mascalese grapes, and from the search for a modern expression of this noble grape variety cultivated in the unique and splendid terroir of Etna.

Light translucent color with a glowing ruby red at the rim. Very typical Etna Rosso with bright red summer fruits, volcanic sulfur, and wet mineral notes. There’s a precise and nice acidity that balances bright fruit and medium refined tannins. Drinking well now with a lighter than air consistency. Availability: Vinos.ca
