Elegant, fragrant and fresh with strawberry, sour cherry and wild currant aromas and flavours, great focus and finesse with a stony minerality and crisp finish. The vineyards on the northern slopes of Mount Etna — the tallest active volcano in Europe — and high altitude contribute to the vibrancy, intensity and minerality of the wine. Don’t let the lighter colour and medium body fool you. This wine has loads of character. One-hundred-percent Nerello Mascalese, a grape you should discover if you haven’t already.
