Palmento Costanzo Etna Rosato Mofete 2022 Cl 75
A family-run business, established after the restoration project of an old 19th-century palmento in 2010 by Mimmo and Valeria Costanzo, who, in 14 hectares of property, ten of which are dedicated to vines at the foot of Etna (northern slope), produce wines made from native grapes: nerello mascalese, nerello cappuccio, carricante and catarratto.
A winery with the modern spirit and attention to detail, resulting in innovative packaging, the multi-sensory label, beyond the image of the volcano, is made thanks to a totally printable textural pigment, extracted from the dust of Etna.
