The history of Etna is studded with the historic eruptions which have shaped it. The eruption of 1614 is legendary, lasting ten years and the longest ever recorded, halting right on the edge of the vineyards of Sciaranuova. A very evocative name for our Cru dell’Etna. At the time of planting the vineyards, in keeping with our spirit of research, we planted a small vineyard of Riesling. An extraordinary grape variety which loves altitude and lava soils. An experiment that time will help us judge.

The grapes are picked into crates and immediately refrigerated at 8⁰C, selected by hand and sent for a light destalking and soft pressing, the decanted must is racked and inoculated with yeasts and ferments at 15⁰C in inox stainless steel, the wine thus obtained remains on the fine lees until June with continuous stirring.
Great potential, from 7 to 10 years
