Etna Rosso Contrada Feudo di Mezzo

In this wine the grapes of our Cru express an austere, deep character with autumn suggestions.


Our Etna Rosso DOC Contrada Feudo di Mezzo is a light garnet red wine. On the nose stand out floreal scents with red fruits notes. The palate is structured with thick tannins. A long lived wine.
