TASTING NOTES

Etna Rosso Pietrarizzo comes from the district of the same name located on the northern slope of Etna, known as the most suitable for high quality production. More precisely we are in the municipality of Castiglione di Sicilia, 650 metres above sea level. Etna Rosso is made with Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio grapes. The grapes are harvested manually and also selected in the cellar, destemmed and not crushed, aged in cement tanks where they macerate for about 10 to 12 days. Once fermentation is complete, the grapes are left to macerate for a few more days, traditionally drawn off and pressed. Ageing takes place in large wooden barrels for about 6 months and 3 months in the bottle. In the glass, Etna Rosso is ruby red with soft violet reflections. On the nose there are evident hints of red berry fruits: marasca cherry, black cherry. On the palate it stands out for its balanced tannins and fullness. Sapid and long finish. Wine with an intense and spicy aroma, which goes 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.
