Goccia Rosso 2022 is made with 100% Nerello Mascalese; a variety thought to have originated in Sicily and one of the main red varieties grown on Etna.
The grapes were harvested at the end of September, from different plots around Randazzo, traditionally planted with a mix of varieties using albarello training (gobelet). Nerello Mascalese has been selected from these vineyards, while all other varieties became another wine called Altro.
After 10 days of maceration the juice was transferred to steel tanks, where it rested until bottling in May.
A wonderful, medium-bodied wine with fine tannins and dark red fruit. Etna on the nose and fresh on the tongue! Enjoy at 14–16 degrees.
