"Lenza di Munti 720 slm" Etna Rosso DOC 2018 - Nicosia

A wine with a volcanic personality. After all, what else can you expect from an Etna Rosso? Lenza di Munti of Cantine Nicosia is a wine with a great personality and complexity. Blend of autochthonous grapes, Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio, cultivated on the lava terraces of vineyards at high altitude, it combines the elegance of mountain wines with the marked mineral content deriving from its volcanic origin. Mainly aged in stainless steel, this red wine matures for about 4 months in tonneaux and rests in the bottle for at least another 6 months before being released to market. In the glass it is a beautiful bright ruby red colour. The nose reveals itself to be decidedly complex, with floral scents and notes that clearly recall red fruit. In the mouth, however, it surprises with its fresh vivacity. Soft and mineral, it enjoys a long and intense fruity finish.

Who knows if in 1898, when Francesco Nicosia, great-grandfather of the current owner, decided to open his first wine shop in Trecastagni, he already knew that Etna would one day become the very symbol of quality wine in Sicily. He probably hoped so. After all, even then the Etnean wine was known and appreciated throughout Europe for its mineral strength and its volcanic personality. From those fortunate beginnings, to the current management the path has been long but consistent. Today the company is entrusted to the hands of Carmelo Nicosia who has staked everything on the redevelopment of the company, investing in the expansion and renovation of vineyards, as well as in the construction of a modern processing cellar. Today Cantine Nicosia is a dynamic, modern and efficient company, able to look to the future in full respect of tradition, thanks to a young but well-trained staff. Native grape varieties and international varieties well adapted to the climate of Sicily, coexist to give life to wines of great personality, produced in full respect of the environment. The headquarters of the winery have remained in Trecastagni, while most of the company's vineyards are located not far away, at the foot of Monte Gorna, one of Etna's many extinct craters. The company also owns vast tracts of land in Vittoria, in the Ragusano area, where Cerasuolo DOCG is produced, and directly manages large expanses of vineyards in the rest of Sicily.

    Made with Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio, this has aromas of wild red berry, violet, eucalyptus and baking spice. Linear and focused, it offers juicy strawberry, orange zest, aromatic herb and star anise alongside bright acidity and lithe, finegrained tannins. Drink through 2027. KERIN O’KEEFE
