Italian wine importer Marc de Grazia founded Le Vigne di Eli in 2006 when he purchased 5 hectares of vines on the northern slope of Mount Etna. The 2 tiny vineyard plots are in the renowned contrada [cru] of Feudo di Mezzo and Moganazzi-Voltasciara. The labels are his daughter’s Elena’s [Eli’s] drawings, “a substantial part of the small proceeds go to a childrens’ hospital, the Ospedale Pediatrico Meyer in Florence”. Vines were planted in 1957 and 1967, are at 650-700 meters in elevation and in “volcanic ash with black pumice and volcanic rock, extremely rocky” soil. 650 cases made. Garnet in colour with aromas of cherry, tarry earth, wildflowers and roasted chipotle pepper. Cherry, wild strawberry, red currant, black pepper, earth, roasted herbs trace and ashy/chalky minerality are framed by sturdy tannins and fresh acidity. Red fruit and peppery spice linger between each sip. Well structured, straightforward, with a rustic edge. 98% Nerello Mascalese, 2% Nerello Cappuccio 14.5% Alcohol Le Vigne di Eli Etna Rosso DOC 2017 #vinobiologico #sustainablewine #organicwine #volcanicwine #etnawine #vinisiciliani #sicilianwine #vinoitaliano #vinbiologique #vinorosso #winereview #winelabel #redwine #instavino #winestagram #italianwinelover #sicilianwinelover #italianwines #instawine #nerellomascalese #etnarosso #levignedieli #caravino
