The district of Pietrarizzo, since the last century, is considered by the natives of the area to be one of the finest crus. The vine used is the Nerello Mascalese arranged in terraces, vinified in cement tanks and aged in large wooden barrels.

Wild rose, red berry, dark spice and Mediterranean brush aromas come together to create a delicate, alluring fragrance. The smooth, elegant palate doles out juicy red cherry, strawberry, white pepper and clove alongside polished, silky tannins. Bright acidity gives it tension and energy. It's already approachable, but will age well for several more years. Drink through 2026.

Made with fruit from young vines in the Contrada Pietrarizzo, the 2016 Etna Rosso Pietrarizzo is a pure expression of Nerello Mascalese that is fermented in cement vats and later aged in oak barrel for 12 months. Some 23,000 bottles were made. The bouquet offers wild fruit and hints of crushed white pepper. The bouquet is simple and forthcoming. You get a hint of steeped-tea astringency on the close.
