Etna Rosato "De Aetna" DOC 2020 - Terra Costantino

The name DeAetna that characterises this line of Sicilian wines from Cantina TerraCostantino is inspired by the title of an ancient Latin pamphlet. Etna Rosato DOC, this wine is the result of the processing of two native Etnean grapes, Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio. Ancient vines that in recent years have attracted the interest of many enthusiasts, in Italy and worldwide. TerraCostantino cultivates them in the company's vineyards in Contrada Blandano, on the southern slope of the volcano, about 450-550 metres above sea level. Here the old vineyards with plants over 40 years old find an ideal microclimate, with roots sunk into soils rich in minerals and a beneficial thermal excursion that favours the slow ripening of the grapes. Harvested by hand, the grapes are quickly delivered to the winery for processing within a few hours. The must is obtained by direct pressing followed by a cold clarification phase and fermentation at a controlled temperature. For subsequent ageing, the wine is left in steel tanks for a few months in contact with its own yeasts in order to enhance the characteristics of the terroir. This is an extremely versatile wine, which goes equally well with meat and fish dishes. Served chilled, it can also be a pleasant aperitif while waiting for dinner to be ready.

We are in one of the most interesting corners of enological Sicily. At the foot of Mount Etna, where the vineyards grow on unique soils and develop thanks to a climate that is much cooler than that experienced throughout the rest of the island. It was against this backdrop that TerraCostantino became Etna's first organic winery, at a time when the world's attention had not yet been focused on the volcano's extraordinary oenological microcosm. Behind this brand is a long history of agricultural culture and love for the land. We are in contrada Blandano in Viagrande, where 10 hectares at high altitude overlooking the Mediterranean give life to simply extraordinary wines. Trees and rows of indigenous grapes grow on lava flows in the heart of Etna DOC. The winery, the first in southern Italy to be built according to modern bio-architecture techniques, was designed to be completely concealed in the natural degradation of the vines. Both the cellar and the barrel cellar do not require artificial cooling systems. The soil they are in contact with maintains a constant temperature of 15° and ensures natural ventilation.
