Firriato Etna Rosso DOC Le Sabbie dell’Etna 2020
Le Sabbie dell’Etna Rosso is, along with its white variant, the progenitor of Firriato’s decades-long production on Etna. The wines of the Cavanera Etnea Estate are elitist by birth and dedicated to exclusivity. Labels designed for and dedicated to the most discerning winelover. Le Sabbie dell’Etna Rosso reveals itself in the glass with a delicious and complex bouquet with notes of cinnamon, black pepper, black currant and cherries under spirits. Only the extraordinary terroir of Etna’s northern slope, on the slopes of Europe’s largest active volcano, could generate this wine of great personality. The estate’s volcanic soils are distinguished by their high concentration of nutrients such as phosphorus, which determines the concentration of sugars in the must, manganese, which increases the plant’s ability to defend itself from the cold, and iron, which contributes to the pigmentation of the black berry varieties, determining the bright color of the grapes of the indigenous Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio.
