Wine from Etna | Classic



Mount Etna is the highest mountain on the Mediterranean island of Sicily and also the most active volcano in Europe. It is believed that wine has been grown on Etna for thousands of years, the associated DOC has existed since 1968 and was updated in 2014. The growing area extends between 450 and 1100 meters above sea level from Randazzo in the north to Milo in the east and around the southern slopes of Etna. The soil is of volcanic origin, very rich in minerals and composed mainly of lava, ash and sand. Only recently have Sicilian wineries recognized Etna's potential and embraced this last great challenge of Italian viticulture. The extremely manageable vineyards cover less than 1,000 hectares, and only top quality wines are produced there. - Gerardo

"Etna is not only currently spitting fire again, it is also considered a hotspot of Italy's wine regions. The Etna wine region provides the basis for exceptional wines." - Falstaff

"Since then, Etna has virtually been considered the cool-climate region of the south. The very unique combination of volcanic soils and altitude - at 3400 meters, Etna is the highest volcano in Europe - creates finesse-rich wines with a pronounced salty-mineral flavor." - Falstaff

Wine from Etna | Classic | Buy at Gerardo

The vineyards around Mount Etna can almost be called their own wine region, so distinctive and unique are the wines from there. The strength is clearly in the white wines, which stand out for their salty taste and mineral notes reminiscent of flint. The red wines are somewhat in the background of the great whites, but are not to be despised: Etna Rosso are rather light-bodied drops, so very different from some opulent red Sicilians. The red wines from Etna all have something Burgundy-like in common, which is due to the relatively cool climate and the grape variety Nerello Mascalese.

After pioneers such as Giuseppe Benanti or the Belgian Frank Cornelissen, long-established wineries on the island have also recognized the quality potential of Etna and acquired vineyards. Today, the who's who of the wine scene can be found at the foot of the volcano, from Tasca d'Amerita to Planeta and Cusumano to Donnafugata, all of them are represented at the 'Fire Mountain'. - Gerardo [TS09/22]
