Pietradolce - 'Rampante' DOC Etna Rosso 2014
100% Nerello Mascalese from the northern slopes of Mount Etna, 2,788 feet above sea level. The bush trained vines are pre-phylloxera and are between 90 years old and grown on mineral rich soil. The grapes are then left to macerate on the skins for 18 day before aging in lightly toasted French oak barrels for 14 months. Natural malolactic fermentation. Bright scarlet in color, the wine shows notes of red fruits, earth, and minerality. On the palate the wine is elegant with an excellent sense of balance and finesse.
