From Nerello Mascalese grapes (90%) and other native vines (mantiddatu, bracati, minnella, nera, nerello cappuccino). The grape skins are left to macerate in the must for 12 days and fermented with natural yeast. The vintage year, processing techniques and refining process in chestnut barrels rather than oak ones, ensure this Etna Rosso an appealing and original taste.
