Our beautiful Etna Rosato rosé wine from the talented Piano dei Daini Vineyard in Sicily has just picked up another prestigious award as Best Rosé in Italy 2017 at the Gambero Rosso annual review and selection of Italy’s best wines Vini d’Italy in July 2017.
If you haven’t tried it YET (where have you been?), this rosé, a light copper colour, reveals the character and strength of this terroir. It has excellent minerality and an earthy nuance. Notes of raspberries, strawberries and roses. It is an elegant, well-balanced wine. The grapes are picked by hand and the rich, volcanic soil of Etna combined with the altitude above sea-level (700 asl) gives this wines intense character and complexity without the weight sometimes associated with Sicilian wines.
100% Nerello Mascalese. Year 2014.
Only 3000 bottles produced.
March 2017 it was awarded the Best Sicilian Rosé at the Sicilian Wine Awards held in Taormina, Sicily.
