Crimson red in color, this wine has attractive red cherry and wild strawberry aromas, coupled with floral notes. Medium bodied, the palate is flavor, with underlying warm spice and mineral notes. The firm acidity is balanced by fine and austere tannins.
Rosso Jeudi 15
The grapes come from a beautiful, two hectare property, located in the contrada MonteLaguardia, at 800 meters altitude, on the northern slopes of Mt Etna. 90 year alberello (bush) vines of Nerello Mascalese were hand harvested on the 8th October, along with a small percentage (less than 5%) of Nerello Cappuccio and Alicante (Grenache). 70% of the grapes were de-stemmed by hand into an open fermenter. The rest of the grapes were added as whole bunches. Fermentation was conducted by indigenous yeasts. The fermenting must was in contact with the skins for 15 days during which time it was foot trodden several times. After pressing, the new wine remained on fine lees, in a large, old oak cask, before bottling in October 2020. It was neither fined nor filtrated. No SO2 was added.
