Vulka' Etna Rosso 2016

Region:  Italy, Sicily, Etna

Variety:  Nerello Mascalese 80% - Nerello Cappuccio 20%

"Vulkà Etna Rosso, a blend of Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio, is an authentic interpretation of the Etna terroir, but capable of combining elegance and drinkability. The vital energy of Etna is found in this wine to which the volcanic origin and the altitude of the vineyards give great minerality and an extraordinary character."
