Etnella – Petrosa 2017

 

Etnella’s 2017 Petrosa is made of 85% Nerello Mascalese and 15% Nerello Capuccio, from 70- to 120-year-old vines planted on rocky, volcanic soil at 780 metres altitude. After a manual harvest, the grapes were destemmed, crushed and loaded into stainless steel vats, where they macerated with their skins for 12 days. Fermentation took place with indigenous yeasts, without additions or temperature control. After pressing, the wine was aged for 10-15 months in used barriques. It was then bottled unfiltered and unfined, with no sulphites added.

 

Etnella’s 2017 Petrosa has an bright ruby-red color with an intense, floral nose, filled with aromas of red cherries and plums, Mediterranean herbs, flowers and a hint of balsamico. On the palate it’s medium- to full-bodied, structured and fresh, with well-integrated tannins and lots of tart red fruit, sweet spices, iron and a touch of ash. Pairs perfectly with mushroom dishes.

 

About Etnella

 

Up on Europe’s highest active volcano, Sicily’s Etna, Davide Bentivegna makes natural wines that radiate a sense of place. With no background in winemaking, he left a managerial position at Siemens to follow his heart, producing his first vintage in 2010. He now cultivates vines at altitudes ranging from 500 to 1000 metres above sea level, promoting responsibility towards the environment, the community and the future along the way. He makes wine according to anthroposophical principals and his own ree, spiritual approach, with a clear aim: respect the land, respect each other and produce happiness.
