When we started producing wines in 2001, we did not understand anything about wine legislation neither rules regarding labeling products.

When we had to make labels for our first wines, we were confused with the different “quality levels” and in the end we chose for the simplest and most basic “quality level”: Table wine. Back in 2002, mentioning the vintage or other information on a Table Wine label was not admitted by law and so we decided to use our numbering system, starting from 1, being the first time this wine was produced, moving on in time.

In order to inform our clients regarding vineyard site, varietal and vintage, on every wine and label we produce, we will enter eventually in the A.O.C. Etna or Sicily which will enable us to write most information on the labels. This will create more transparency as we cultivate on multiple vineyard sites from which we produce single vineyard wines, called “contrada” or "cru".

The list of the editions below will be helpful for you as well as ourselves, as over time we will loose track of the editions and vintages!

Imagine pouring in a decanter half a bottle of a Côtes-de-Nuits Villages and half a bottle of Barbabresco of a good vintage and tasting this ‘cocktail’ after half an hour. This will give you a good idea of an Etna Rosso wine: fragrant, light color, fine tannins, structure and elegance. Obviously missing the distinct touch of sunshine and Mediterranean generosity of a real Etna Rosso!
The elegance of the wines from Etna combined with hands-off winemaking results in wines which can accompany a large variety of food.

As an example, this can go from a young Etna Rosso being appreciated with fish dishes and the same wine, with a few years of bottle aging paired with braised meat dishes.
