Etna Rosso DOC - La Gelsomina

La Gelsomina goes as far as the volcanic slopes to propose this Etna Rosso DOC, a Sicilian wine in every fiber of its being. A wine that follows an articulated vinification process, in steel for 2 months, tonneaux and barriques for more than a year and 4 months resting in the bottle. It takes time to extract from Etna Rosso DOC everything it has to offer, and to allow it to tell a story of territory and passion. The enthusiast will find a velvety ruby red colour, with garnet reflections in the glass. Hints of red fruit and vanilla, placidly ordered into complex odorous clouds. Full and harmonious to the taste, respectful of the typicality of the vines that determine its soul. Etna Rosso DOC La Gelsomina is excellent with red meats, game, tasty cheeses and dishes with intense and territorial flavours. A robust, accomplished wine, to uncork when you are looking for something out of the ordinary.

Gelsomina was born in Presa, a hamlet of Piedimonte Etneo in the province of Catania. It has a special relationship with Etna, made up of distant glances and hidden fears. The lava and clay soil contribute to uniquely characterizing the aromas of the grapes, which inherit peculiar traits impossible to imitate. Stepping through the gates of La Gelsomina means entering a suspended world, where vineyards, olive groves and orchards trace the outline of a natural amphitheatre that pampers and welcomes you, transmitting the warmth that La Gelsomina draws from its land and infuses into every bottle produced.
