Palmento Costanzo - Mofete, Etna Rosso (2018)
A bouquet of dusty, red berries with gentle spicy aromas and hints of volcanic ash. On the palate the wine is fresh, with soft tannins and a sapid finish. Elegant, savoury with tense acidity.
These 5 to 30 year-old, bush-trained vines are planted at an epic 2,230 - 2,460 ft. above sea level on the north-facing side of Mount Etna, on volcanic sand and rock. Grapes are painstakingly hand-picked and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The resulting wine underwent about 10 days of maceration on skins, with daily pump-overs during the first week and then aged in stainless steel and neutral oak barrels.
Appellation: Etna Rosso
