he third wine produced under this label is a blend of cuvees made from organically grown Nerello Mascalese grapes, hand harvested from terraced vineyards located high on the north face of Mt Etna, Sicily. These old bush vines, are co-planted with small quantities of Nerello Cappuccio, Grenache and the indigenous white varieties; Grecanico, Catarratto and Minella Bianca. 50% of the blend is wine made in a Palmento; the traditional Etnean winemaking building with only a 5 day skin maceration. 30% is wine made in a Georgian qvevri, with a one month skin maceration. The remaining 20% of the blend is a wine fermented and aged in a large, used, oak botte.
All of the wines underwent spontaneous alcoholic fermentation by indigenous yeasts, and were left on fine lees for 12 months before blending. Bottling took place in September 2020, without fining or filtration.
