Pietradolce

Pietrodolce was established in 2005 and found its home in Solicchiata, an area within the district of the Sicilian hill town of Castiglione di Sicilia on the Northern slopes of Etna. The vineyards extend over an area of 11 hectares at a height of between 600 and 900 feet above sea level and are divided into three sections, two of which fall within the territory of Rampante and one in the territory of Zottorinoto.

The soils of the vineyards are a rather stony, light, sandy loam, with plentiful mineral elements, a generous gift from "our" volcano and which gives our wines special characteristics, and makes them completely unique. Only native grape varieties to Mount Etna is cultivated, like Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio and Carricante that are and will be the main players in the Sicilian history.
