A Sicilian who speaks French

That the uniqueness of a wine is determined by the characteristics of the terroir of origin, we were aware of, but when the latter is a volcano like Etna, then we just have to bow to its greatness. We are on the slopes of Mongibello, called with reverential fear by the Sicilians' A Muntagna, the highest active volcano in Europe where, in the Palari district, it is located the homonymous winery of Salvatore Geraci. Here the soil rich in minerals confers to Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio, vines bred in saplings, all the nourishment they need to give life to that sample of elegance and minerality that is the Lighthouse: a true champion who, for his ethereal and complex aromas and its sapid and mineral structure, could give a hard time to a Pinot Noir of Burgundy.

At sight it is of a beautiful transparent and bright ruby colour that opens its olfactory range on complex and refined notes of ripe cherry, macerated violet, humus and liquorice, incense, tobacco and graphite. On the palate it reveals a great balance between sharp sapidity, softness, fragrant acidity and silky tannins. Never ending persistence on spicy and fruity memories.

Simply perfect with game birds or with black truffle, it will prove to be an ideal companion for a nice sesame tuna steak.
