Aitna was a Greek-Siceliot polis located on the slope of the volcano Etna. They called this wine Aitna to honour their volcano on which it grows, choosing the Aetna tetradrachm as our winery logo.
It is produced from autochthnous grapes: Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio cultivated using the classic “alberello” system. They have been cultivated since ancient times and produce a wine enriched by flavours and scents. The sandy volcanic soil gives the wine unique and characteristic mineral notes. The vineyard of Edome’ cantine is situated in Passopisciaro, in the district of Feudo di Mezzo and it is at 700 m a.s.l.
We tasted: Etna Rosso 2014
It is a Ruby red wine with fine hints of violet. The bouquet is ethereal, spicy with hints of tobacco and vanilla. The flavor is full bodied, with the right amount of tannin, dry, persistent and harmonic. For the food matching it is ideal with red meat, and seasoned cheese.
