Etna Rosso, Pietradolce, Sicilia 2021
Made from 100% nero mascalese grown at 800m on the northern slopes of Mount Etna, this is a wild wine. Taut, tart and scented, it has great poise and energy. Wild strawberry, floral, wet-stone and sour-cherry flavours are lifted by the bright acidity on this light-bodied delicate Sicilian red.

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.
