Contadino

Our entry-level red wine is basically a field-blend of mostly Nerello Mascalese (85%) with other local varietals from all our old vine vineyards: Nerello Capuccio, Allicante Boushet, Minella and Uva Francesa. Our Contadino expresses Etna as made in a traditional way of blending different varietals: fragrant, elegant, structured with personality.
