A heroic and difficult viticulture that aims to preserve ancient vine varieties and centuries-old traditions. At 1100 meters above the sea level, on the North-western slope of the volcano, in one of the highest vineyard in Europe, surrounded by ancient lava flows, after a 15 years long mass selection on ancient ungrafted vines– it’s here that we grow our wonderful vine variety, the Grecanico Dorato. And we use it to make our monovarietal Millesulmare: a mountain and volcanic wine with, at the same time, the fragrance of the sea.
At 800 meters above the sea level, on the South-eastern slope of the volcano, on the incredibly steep side of an ancient crater of Mount Etna, from an ancient vineyard of Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio with a pre-phylloxera heart – here we make our Calmarossa, an authentic Etna Rosso Doc, refined, rich in minerals and with a proud volcanic taste. We are constantly searching for the perfect grape and aiming to minimize the yield per vine, keeping it at about 800 grams for each plant. A limited production of numbered bottles, less than a bottle per vine, which shows our utmost respect for the winemaking tradition on Mount Etna.
