"Sosta Tre Santi" Etna Doc Brut 2017 - Nicosia

A grape variety, Nerello Mascalese, and its territory of origin, the slopes of the great Sicilian volcano. It is surprising to discover how grapes and territory can form such a close bond. And it is even more interesting when, as in this case, you discover how that grape variety is not only capable of creating extraordinary wines vinified in the "traditional" way, i.e. in red. but it can also be the basis of excellent sparkling wines. Cultivated at high altitudes, on volcanic soil, in fact, the Nerello grapes preserve the right freshness necessary to produce an excellent metodo classico. This Sosta Tre Santi, Etna DOC Brut, proposed by Cantine Nicosia, is the result of a long and accurate production process. At least 24 months of refinement on the lees in the bottle are necessary to produce a sparkling wine that authentically represents the characteristics of Nerello and the Etnean terroir. Straw colour and fine and persistent perlage, the nose reveals a complex and elegant bouquet, with fruity and floral notes, and typical hints of bread crust and yeast. In the mouth it stands out for its great minerality and remarkable acidity. A decidedly intriguing wine to pair with savoury fish dishes or white meats. Also perfect as an aperitif. It will probably be the wine that everyone decides to continue their lunch with. Let's not be unprepared. An extra bottle in the fridge is almost de rigueur.

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.

    Delicate scents evoking yellow spring flowers, acacia honey and citrus lift out of the glass. Fresh and polished, the elegant palate doles out mature yellow apple, bread crust and tangerine slice alongside silky bubbles. KERIN O’KEEFE
