Vinified in temperature controlled, stainless steel tanks. The wine is then aged in stainless steel tanks for three months (in contact with the fine lees) then in bottle for one month before release. 

A new winery with just a few hectares on the eastern side of Etna, 500 meters above sea level, in Mascali (CT), planted to Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio, Carricante, and Cattarratto.
