Lying on the north side of Etna, between 650 and 780 meters, the company owns 15 hectares of vineyards, framed by hazelnut and olive groves.
In 2005, Giuseppe Russo renewed it, giving it the name of his father and preserving the legacy of his family from Passopisciaro, one of the villages at the center of the rebirth of the great red wines of Etna.
Most of the vines are very old, and some are over 100 years old. Their roots lie in a ground that is unique in the world: in the many layers of sciara that the great volcano has erupted over the millennia.
And each sciara (as the Sicilians call the old lava, according to the Arabic etymology) holds a different hoard of minerals for the grapes.
