Etna Rosso "De Aetna" DOC 2019 - Terra Costantino

Let's start with a curiosity. The name deAetna is inspired by the title of an ancient Latin pamphlet and expresses the sacredness of the oenological universe. Written in the form of a dialogue, the text tells of the Venetian writer Pietro Bembo's ascent to the summit of the volcano on his return from his stay in Messina with Costantino Lascaris. Etna Rosso DOC, this interesting wine by Cantina TerraCostantino is made from a classic Etnean blend of 90% Nerello Mascalese and 10% Nerello Cappuccio. Native to the volcano, these grapes are capable of producing pleasantly elegant and fruity wines, reminiscent of the noblest Pinot Noir from Burgundy. After harvesting, the grapes are destemmed and undergo fermentation with maceration for about ten days. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged in steel and oak tonneaux before being bottled and left to rest for some time in the cellar. The result is a red wine that is both elegant and intense. Pleasantly mineral, it is a perfect wine both as an aperitif and in combination with delicate dishes. Excellent, for example, with vegetable pies or main courses of meat, preferably white.

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.
