From: Sicily, Italy
Varietal: 90% Nerello Mascalese, 10% Nerello Cappuccio
Tasting Notes: Beautifully balanced, rustic and elegant – the versatility of this wine encapsulates the fervour that surrounds Etna’s boutique producers. Introduce yourself to Sicilian wine, and believe the hype. Fruit comes from the Terra Costantino estate’s carefully tended Certified Organic vineyard on the southeast slope of Mount Etna. Grapes are harvested by hand, and wine ages in stainless steel and large oak casks prior to bottling.
Pairing: An ideal match with appetizers, pasta, and roasted meats.
From the Terra Costantino vineyards on Etna’s south-eastern slope at Contrada Blandano, situated in the Viagrande territory, we can see the sea and taste the windblown tang of salt. The great volcano that sits behind the property protects the vines from frosts brought by the northerly ‘Tramontana’ wind. The estate, comprised of a single ten-hectare plot sitting between 450 and 550 meters above sea level, lies in the heart of the Etna DOC zone.
Terra Costantino grows exclusively native Etna varieties: white-skinned Carricante and Catarratto grapes and red-skinned Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio. In full respect to territory and environment, all wines are certified organic.
