Aetneus Etna Rosso

Winemaker Notes

An Etna Rosso without compromises, mirror of the harmonic landscape and of the hard work in the vineyard.

Aetneus is born in monumental vineyards on the Volcano’s north side: a living natural wine, complex and elegant, with great aging potential.

Ruby red colour. Nose: ethereal, intense, hints of ripe fruit and tobacco.
Palate: elegant, harmonic, considerably long aftertaste, rightly tannic.

14.5% Alcohol.

Vines: Bush trained. 9,000 plants per hectare (3,650 plants per acre)

Age of vineyard: Up to 150 years

Altitude: 750 m amsl

Terrain: Sandy, volcanic, very rich in minerals, with subacid reaction.
