Produced with grapes from vines growing in the dark, mineral rich volcanic soils 700 - 800m above sea level on the northern slopes of Mount Etna. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation occur in stainless steel tanks before the wine is aged for 6 months in French oak barriques. After bottling, the wine is aged in the cellars for a further 6 months before release.
The Caciorgna family first started producing wine in Tuscany in Casole d 'Elsa, in the province of Siena. In 2006, Pietro Caciorgna was visiting a friend who makes wine on his farm on the slopes of Mount Etna. Pietro was inspired by the wines and the location and began visiting other vineyards and subsequently bought a small parcel of half a hectare with Nerello vines in Passo Cannone. Following on were two other small vineyard purchases and the development of a small winery and cellar in Rovittello.
