Description

A unique wine

Etna, or rather 'A Muntagna as the Sicilians call it, is the highest volcano in Europe, a magical and incredible place where land, sun, sea and fire meet and merge together. Here the vineyards surround its slopes offering a unique spectacle in the world. Located on terracing contained by dry lava stone walls, they are all ungrafted vines (thanks to the absence of phylloxera) sinking their roots in the soils rich in lava, sand and pumice, minerals that will express their peculiarities in the wine. Produced from Nerello grapes (Mascalese and Cappuccio), typical of this area, Etna Rosso Fondo Filara is a wine with a great aromatic fragrance and intense minerality.

Transparent ruby red, it has a spicy and vegetal olfactory impact, followed by aromas of fruit, humus and tobacco. Sapid and elegant on the palate, it is soft and ends with a fine marascan persistence.

Perfect on a slice of seasoned Ragusano cheese, excellent with wild game or with a simpler tuna steak.
