Filippo and Nancy Rizzo passionately craft low intervention, organic wines from indigenous grapes in the Catania region on the eastern coast of Sicily. Whilst reviving his own vines, Filippo “spent several vintages with his friend and fellow winemaker Frank Cornelissen making wine high on the slopes of Mt. Etna”. From vines planted in 2011, at 430 meters in elevation, with clay and limestone soil. Spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts in “vertical plastic "tini" without temperature control, with maceration on the skin for max 4 weeks, malolactic fermentation occurred naturally”, aged in cement tanks. No added So2, unfined and unfiltered. Dark garnet in colour, with layered aromas of cherry, black currant, iron minerality, soft spice, carnation, roasted herb and rose petal. Black cherry, blackberry, pomegranate, black pepper and iron minerality are framed by firm tannins and fresh acidity. Tarry earth and black cherry infuse the plush finish. Silky, agile and easy drinking.
