2015 Passopisciaro Passorosso Sicilia image

This wine is made from the grapes of Nerello Mascalese planted in various Contrade (Crus) of Malpasso, Guardiola, Santo Spirito, Favazza and Arcuria. These Contrade lie between 500 and 1,000 m/1,650 and 3,300 ft above sea level on the northern side of Mount Etna. The vines are bush trained and are between 70 and 100 years old. Generally, the higher crus are on a more gravelly soil, the lower ones in a deeper powder made with more oxidized, older lavas. As a blend of different altitudes and soil types, Passopisciaro demonstrates the breadth of flavors that Etna can produce.
