DOC Etna Red Wine

On the Mount Etna the grapevine plays a fundamental role. The 'Homo Etneus' enhanced a rugged and wild territory by building majestic terraces, dry-stone walls and the so-called 'Palmenti' (places where grapes were crushed), which are unique artworks of rural architecture that made the Etna be included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Etna's viticulture is different due to both the original climate environment and the peculiarity as well as excellence of the wines produced. The particular chemical and sensorial features are given by the local vine variety Nerello Mascalese and Carricante.
