2012 Al Cantara  Lu Veru Piaciri Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio image

This wine is the result of our search for simplicity, the search for the simple things we need to escape the grind and toil of everyday life, such as a good glass of red wine.?This wine, a Etna DOC, can be drunk on its own or may accompany a good meat dish. Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio, are the grape varieties that give life to the Etna Rosso DOC.?The vineyard is located in the north slope of the volcano Etna at an altitude of 650 meters above sea level. The volcanic soil is rich in minerals and nutrients. The vines are grown in espaliers with a density of 6.000 vines per hectare. Carefully selected, the grapes are handpicked and brought into the winery where they are separated from the stalks and are then gently crushed and pressed. The grapes are transferred to stainless steel tanks for where fermentation takes place at 25°C, followed by malolactic fermentation.

The wine is deep ruby red with consistent flavours. The nose, initially perceives floral notes of red fruits, almonds, cinnamon and cocoa. In the mouth it is smooth and fresh, tannins typical of the grape varieties lead to a dry finish. The wine goes well with roasted red meats, pasta timbale and cold cuts.
