 2014 VINTAGE

Piccola Contrada at 550 m a.s.l., is located between overhangs of sandstone that the lava has just come to surround. Whipping, satisfying, full-bodied wine.

2014 surprised us by a very rapid harvest. Etna experienced a summer in maximum drought, but with cool nights, typical of the highest volcano in Europe (otherwise it looks like 2012, while it is much more balanced); a long heat rose several times to consume the air and reign up high on the north side, reaching the most ancient and powerful plants of Nerello Mascalese. Our vineyards were recognized because they still had grapes at the end of October. The grapes arrived in the black cellar, with scents that were new bluish inventions and a strange new wonderful spice.
