TASTING NOTES

Tornatore is in the municipality of Castiglione di Sicilia, 650 metres above sea level. The vineyards are planted on the northern slope of Etna, known as the most suitable for good quality production. Etna Rosso “Focovivo” is made with Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio grapes. The name is inspired by Etna, one of the most active volcanos in the world, with a live fire (focovivo in the Catania dialect). Etna Rosso is made exclusively for Signorvino and is aged for of 6 months in large wooden barrels. In the glass, it is a bright ruby red, with a few purple reflections. Bright in the glass, it expresses hints of dried flowers and red berried fruits. Soft and velvety on the palate, extremely elegant and with a tangy freshness. This well-structured wine pairs well with roasts, stews and meats. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Tornatore

The beginning of vine cultivation along with the production of wine by the Tornatore family dates back to 1865 when the great-grandfather of the current owner took up farming. In 1910, Giuseppe, the current owner's grandfather, built a house with an adjoining millstone in the Piano Fiera district with an adjoining 2 hectares of vineyard, to which a further 2 hectares were added on the northern slope of Etna in the Piano Felci district at an altitude of 1,000 metres above sea level. The Tornatore family has always had a detailed knowledge of the territories of the municipality of Castiglione di Sicilia, since grandfather Giuseppe and uncle Giovanni were appointed cadastral surveyors in the early 1930s, accompanying the topographer to survey parcels, to define boundaries and names of districts. A family, therefore, with deep roots in its territory of origin, which has never neglected its attachment to and respect for it and its traditions in successive generations. Name and address of producer/distributor: Azienda Agricola Tornatore - Via Pietramarina, 8A - CAP 95012 Castiglione di Sicilia. Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
