La Gelsomina

Etna Rosso

DOC Etna

An "extreme" red, a blend of Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio, coming from the vineyards that embrace the Santa Venera stream, at Tenuta La Gelsomina, on the north-eastern side of Etna. The grapes are harvested by hand during the last ten days of September and left to macerate in contact with the skins, favoring the right aromatic contribution and the complete extraction of the tannins. After fermentation at a controlled temperature, the wine first ages in steel, then continues in tonneax and barrique for 12 and 15 months, completing in the bottle for at least 4 months. A harmonious wine, enveloping in the sip, characterized by unmistakable hints of ripe red fruit, enriched by notes of balsamic vinegar and vanilla.

DOC Etna

Volcanic land 520 meters a.s.l.

The soil of Etna is both lava and clay, made up of the "gghiara", as the Etna people pronounce it, and the result of numerous eruptions that have occurred over the centuries, leaving dust to settle on the fields and magma to crystallize. This has made it a place with absolutely unique mineral characteristics, where, at 550 meters a.s.l., native varietals of the volcano are grown, such as Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio, Carricante and Moscato dell'Etna.
