The I Vigneri Etna Rosso is made from the grapes that vineyard owners traditionally pass on to the workers – I Vigneri – to make wine for daily consumption, although this certainly is a few steps above that. In the capable hands of Salvo Foti, Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio grapes shine in this foot trodden wine. The grapes are macerated on the skins for eight days, before going through a spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts. Afterwards, the wine aged for six months in amphorae, buried underground. Expect intense red fruits and hints of smoke and earthiness.
