About him: The Tracotanza is the most juicy and fresh expression among the wines of Etnella; it comes from vines between 30 and 80 years old site on volcanic soil between 750 and 900 m of altitude.
Ruby red color of medium intensity, immediately striking thanks to incredible aromas of crisp red fruit. Perfumes and palate are well matched with notes of raspberry, black currant and black pepper as well as balsamic sensations that refer to peppermint. In the mouth it's pleasantly flowing, driven by an overwhelming freshness and by a deep salinity typical of the volcanic soil. A territorial sip, which catapults on the slopes of Etna. Dangerously exciting!!!
