Vini Franchetti, led by Andrea Franchetti, acquired the ancient Passopisciaro vineyard and winery on Sicily's Mt. Etna. Planting 40 acres of vines on the north side of the mountain at elevations exceeding 1,000m, the soil showcases a blend of black volcanic and calcareous characteristics. Their unique "super Etna" wine combines the traditional Nerello Mascalese grape with a splash of the lesser-known Italian varietal Cesanese and Bordeaux blending grape Petit Verdot. This results in a captivating blend featuring black cherry, smoke, white pepper, herb notes, and a volcanic minerality that lingers on the finish.
