The gorgeous wines from Mt Etna in Sicily are all the talk amongst wine professionals these days and getting compared to France’s great Burgundy wines. Etna Rosso is primarily made from the Nerello Mascalese grape grown at high elevations on Mt Etna in dense volcanic soils. This unique environment creates hauntingly fragrant wines with deep complexity, intense minerality and great structure. This entry level wine from Pietradolce is vibrant and fresh with bright red berry fruits and hints of mountain underbrush. This is a versatile wine that can be paired with grilled tuna or swordfish, vegetable dishes or white meats.
The vineyards are located on the northern slopes of Mt. Etna, one of Europe's highest volcanoes. It's all about the terroir here - there are significant diurnal (day to night) temperature changes which help preserve the grape's acidity, and rocky volcanic soils enabling good drainage.
