Flavia Prephylloxera Etna Rosso 2015
($70.00 Before Tax)
Produced from a 1 ha vineyard on the volcanic soils of Etna by Flavia Rallo. These vines are 130-140 years old- planted before phylloxera made it to Sicily. This Rosso offers smoky, deep red fruit notes held aloft by a mineral-rich frame & a long finish

Varietal: 80% Nerello Mascalese, 20% Nerello Cappuccio. Hand-harvested, then native yeast fermented in stainless steel. Aging for at least 48 months in 500 liter Slavonian oak tonneaux of third passage, and then refines at least 12 months in bottle.
Taste: Cherry, strawberry and dark red-fruit on both the nose and palate. Mineral rich structure that plays well off of the smoky undertones, and spice that combine with the finish.
