The Etna is a totally different world wine-wise speaking, not only in comparison to the rest of Sicily but to the entire Mediterranean area. Here the warmth of the south of Italy meets the mists, the big thermal excursions, the abundant rain, there’s a bit of the Big North in these wines. You can feel all of this in the delicate fruity, herbal and berries notes, smoothened by the chestnut barrels where this wine “lives” for one year.
