A volcanic, magnetic and sanguineous red wine from Etna, fruit of the vinification of Nerello Mascalese, together with a mix of other local white and red grapes. Son of the sandy and stony terroir of the volcano, he transfers the same minerality to the nose and mouth, supported by aromas of red pulp fruit and a thin, clean and dusty tannin.
Eduardo Torres Acosta, a young winemaker from the Canary Islands, first began working with vines in Tenerife where his father (a local postman) had a small plot of land. In 2012 Eduardo moved to Sicily, where he interned at Azienda Arianna Occhipinti.
Up until the 2017 vintage, the grapes were harvested and then transported to Arianna Occhipinti’s estate in Vittoria. Since the winemaking facility was not on Etna, the wines were not allowed DOC status and simply carried the IGT Terre Siciliane designation. In 2018, Eduardo was able to convert a small Etna garage into a winery but has decided to keep the wines IGT.
