Etna Rosso DOC Sentieri Siciliani 2016
This product is currently sold out.
Volcanic soils and a maritime influence combine to impart a distinct elegance and mineral character upon the island`s wines. Nero d`Avola and Shiraz make reliable, fleshy red wines, whilst Grillo, Inzolia and Chardonnay yield surprisingly well balanced and flavourful white wines. However, it is the uniquely rich and mineral influenced dessert wines that are perhaps Sicily`s greatest contribution to the wine world, from Marsala to Moscato di Pantelleria and Malvasia.
Sentieri Siciliani traditionally sold typical Sicilian agricultural products. They moved into Sicilian viticulture and in collaboration with local farmers, they meticulously select the best grapes and plots for creating high quality Etna wines.
This Etna Rosso is made with the native grapes Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio, grown at an altitude of 650-750m above sea level on the slopes of Mt. Etna. The soil of Mt. Etna is volcanic and very rich in minerals which give the wine a rustic smoky, earthy note. The palate has elegant redcurrant flavours combined with spices, liquorice and a balsamic note on the finish.
Excellent partner to Mediterranean specialities such as tomato based pasta dishes and full flavoured meats.
