Aromatic intensity envelops us in sensations of pebbles and dried berries that are delineated between an anchovy paste/iron notes sensation. We pick cherries and roast chestnuts.
In the mouth, the wine is well structured and rich in matter. The pseudo-caloric sensation carries hints of figs and black fruits, saline notes, and a woody finish. The wine is at its best at least half an hour after opening.
Grilled meat, ossobuco and roast pigeon. With evolution also raw fish
AZ. AGR. SCIARA
is a company that was born on the volcanic soils of Etna in 2015.
At its helm we find Stef Yim, an Asian-American who, after honing his skills as a sommelier in Los Angeles and aware of winemaking experiences in California and France, became a winemaker. He grasps in the uniqueness of Etna’s volcanic soil his belief so much that he wants to push himself closer and closer to the crater. Its Cannonau vineyards, in the Cielo and Nave districts, are, in fact, the highest in Europe.
We are located in Randazzo (CT), Etna, Sicily.
