Etna Rosso Contrada Diciassettesalme

The lava-clay soil gives to this wine strenght, dense tannins and an intense color.


Our Etna Rosso DOC Contrada Diciassettesalme is a ruby red wine.
On the nose, scents of mixed berries turn softly into herbal notes, such as mauve, thyme and juniper all intertwined to mineral sensations. The palate feels perfectly balanced tannins and a balsamic ending.
