The Etna is nowadays considered a competed and desired destination among the wine producers. Something that may look contradictory, due to the implicit challenges and difficulties that involves the morphology of the territory in relation to the cultivation of grapes and then the transformation in Etna doc

unique characteristics, which seem in a perfect balance with the territory.
And this is exactly what we felt tasting the Sicilian wine PASSOROSSO ETNA - PASSOPISCIARO
, an Etna rosso doc
, produced by wine cellar Passopisciaro
rewarded by slow wine
2018, endowed with an intense red ruby color. The nose expresses intense red fruit sensations, while the palate is elegantly mineral, with a velvety tannin due to the 18 months of barrique.
