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.


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
