    Spumante Metodo Classico Etna DOC Brut 2016
  • Etna DOC, Metodo Classico Brut, Millesimato. This is what Cottanera proposes. A sparkling wine of great elegance and complexity, produced from 100% Nerello Mascalese grapes grown in Castiglione di Sicilia, on the slopes of the Etna volcano. This unique area is characterised by mineral-rich soils and a cool, breezy climate. These extreme conditions give the Nerello Mascalese grapes a strong and decisive character, with intense aromas and a distinct minerality. After the harvest, the best bunches are brought to the cellar for processing. This starts with destemming and a soft pressing. Cold maceration then takes place for about 24 hours, followed by fermentation, 25% of which takes place in small French oak barrels, where the wine then remains for a further 8 months in contact with its own yeasts. At this stage, malolactic fermentation also takes place in some barrels. The remainder of the mass ferments instead in steel at a controlled temperature. After bottling, a 40-month maturation on the lees follows, followed by a further 12 months of bottle ageing. Brilliant straw yellow in colour, the nose welcomes us with hints of white flowers accompanied by light citrus notes. In the mouth it is full, fresh and vibrant while showing good structure and complexity. A Brut with a fine and persistent perlage and a distinct minerality. Perfect as an aperitif, it pairs well with fish first courses, white meat main courses and even red meat dishes. Its freshness and minerality make it ideal as an all meal wine.

    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, are grown. Each grape variety finds its ideal habitat in this terroir, expressing its characteristics to the full and producing wines of great complexity and elegance.
