    "L'Ardenza" Rosso Sicilia DOC 2019
  • Ardenza, Sicilia DOC Rosso, proposed here by Cottanera, is an intense and structured wine, produced from 100% Mondeuse grapes grown in Castiglione di Sicilia, in the province of Catania, on the slopes of the Etna volcano. A wine that comes from a unique terroir, characterised by volcanic soils rich in minerals and a cool, breezy climate. These extreme conditions give the Mondeuse grapes a strong and decisive character, with intense aromas and a distinct minerality. The Mondeuse is a black grape variety originating in Savoy, France, which has found an ideal soil on Etna to express itself at its best. This grape variety prefers cool climates and complex soils, such as Etna's volcanic soils, where it can best develop its characteristics. The Mondeuse grapes used to produce Cottanera's L'Ardenza are cultivated at around 700 metres above sea level, with good exposure to the sun. As soon as it is poured into the glass, this Sicilian red has a beautiful intense ruby colour with garnet hues. The nose surprises with a broad and complex bouquet, characterised by a fresh vegetal note and intense fruity hints of morello cherry, cherry and blueberry. To these are added pleasant and elegant balsamic, mineral and spicy notes that recall the volcanic nature of the area. In the mouth, the wine is warm, enveloping and structured, with dense tannins of great quality and a pleasant savoury note that gives balance and persistence. The finish is long and very persistent, with pleasant mineral notes that leave a lasting impression. Perfect with savoury red meats such as lamb, Florentine steak or braised meats, it also goes well with game, mature cheeses and first courses with meat sauces.

    On the northern slopes of Etna, between 700 and 800 metres above sea level, lies Cottanera, a winery that well represents the passion and respect for the volcanic earth. A unique, difficult and at the same time generous territory that gives the grapes unmistakable characteristics. Cottanera is a family story, where the passion for wine is handed down from generation to generation. In the company's vineyards, both indigenous vines, such as Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio and Carricante, and international ones, such as Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Mondeuse. Each grape variety finds its ideal habitat in this terroir, expressing its characteristics to the full and producing wines of great complexity and elegance.
