I Vigneri Etna Rosso Price € 24.00
I Vigneri Etna Rosso is a pure delight, tonic, juicy and driven, floral and cherry with some fruit sweetness on the nose, coupled with Etna’s distinctive spice and some gentle tobacco notes. This a great expression of Etna Rosso that delivers the character of the mountain in a beautiful wine that has real depth and flavour balanced by freshness and vibrancy. A wine with a sense of place…as unencumbered and as representative and as local as it gets!
The I Vigneri Etna Rosso is made from the grapes that vineyard owners traditionally pass on to the workers – I Vigneri – to make wine for daily consumption. The native varieties are Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio. This is a frank, genuine wine, fermented in an Etnean Palmento [traditional winery of Etna, dating back to the 17th and 18th Century]. Fermentation takes place in concrete vat. Vinification and the winemaking process do not include the use of fridges, yeasts, wood ageing or filtering. Racking and bottling are carried out following moon phases.
