The history of the volcano is marked by the eruptions which formed it; that of 1614 is legendary, lasting for ten years, and the longest in reported history. The vines which produce this wine grow on this particular lava flow. A small area contains the Pinot Nero which has been cultivated in this area for centuries, even if sparsely. The result is an absolutely original version of this noble variety.

Time of Harvest
The grapes are picked into crates, selected by hand and sent to be destalked, without being pressed. After inoculation they ferment in open tonneaux, at around 22°C, with gentle manual crushing, followed by 12 days lying on the skins, and pressing in a basket press.
Great potential, from 5 to 10 years.
