Trecastagni, at the foot of one of the extinguished craters dotting Mt. Etna, is home to the ancient vineyards of Monte Gorna with their distinctive lava terraces restructured & replanted with Sicilian varieties. The quality of the volcanic soils here rich in minerals & replete with potassium play an important role in the grapes' maturation process. This warm & full-bodied wine has an intense color with a rich aroma featuring hints of cherry & sweet spices. Pleasant red fruit notes are likewise perceived on the palate supported by sweet tannins and a well-structured, lingering finish. Pair this with Baked Pasta Dishes with Meat Sauce, Meat Couscous, Roasted Game, & Aged Cheeses.
