Etna San Lorenzo Vecchie Vigne 2017
100% Nerello Mascalese
There’s a lovely sweetness to the dried raspberry and strawberry fruit in this lithe, elegant, medium-bodied red, with supple tannins and juicy acidity forming a finely woven frame for the fruit and fragrant tea rose, sandalwood, anise and mineral notes. A stunner. Drink now through 2029.
The estate is located in the northern slopes of the volcano, with vineyards between the village of Solicchiata and the town of Randazzo, the area historically recognized as the finest in the appellation for fine red wines. The property consists of approximately 50 hectares, divided into circa 39 parcels in seven crus. The soils differ very much from cru to cru, and even within the crus themselves.
