The Faro family are well-established in Sicily as expert agronomists and owners of a major nursery of Mediterranaean plants, and Pietradolce was founded by Michele Faro in 2005 as their first steps into wine. They purchased 11 hectares of 80 to 120-year-old pre-phylloxera vines on the northern slopes of Sicily's famous volcano, Mount Etna,and quickly recruited talented winemaker Giuseppe Parlavecchio. His incredibly laid-back style is central to the way in which he blends traditional winemaking techniques with genuine curiosity and experimentation to craft very fine, deliciously multi-layered wines.

Made exclusively from nerello mascalese, grown at an elevation of 800 metres on the volcano’s northern slopes, the nose is perfumed with rose petals and wild strawberry, the sour-cherry-charged fruit is both elegant and tantalisingly tart, the body is light, the acidity bright, and there’s a thrilling ‘run for your life’ sulphurous streak all the way to the finish.
