Region: Mt Etna - Sicily, ITA
Variety: Nerello Mascalese
'Our farming philosophy is based on our acceptance of the fact that man will never be able to understand nature’s full complexity and interactions. We therefore choose to concentrate on observing and learning the movements of Mother Earth in her various energetic and cosmic passages and prefer to follow her indications as to what to do, instead of deciding ourselves. Consequently this has taken us to avoiding all possible interventions on the land we cultivate, including any treatments, whether chemical, organic, or biodynamic, as these are all a mere reflection of the inability of man to accept nature as she is and will be.' - Frank Cornelissen
This pure Nerello Mascalese comes from an old vine vineyard at the lower end of the large Feudo di Mezzo contrada, situated at 600m. asl. This wine is characterised by its pretty structure of elegance and finesse which is quite unique in the Northern Valley.
