Vini Scirto 2015 "A'Culonna" Etna Rosso DOC

Grapes for “A‘Culonna” grow in a vineyard at 600 meters above sea level, in Contrada Feudo di Mezzo, where the soil is rich in pumice and also quite stony. The vines here also average 80 years in age and the makeup is similar to their other rosso with approximately 85% nerello mascalese and 15% nerello cappuccio cofermented each year. As with all wines the fermentation is spontaneous, with an extended maceration of 3-4 weeks before an elevage of 18 months in large 2000L Slovenian oak barrels. No sulfur is added at bottling and no fining or filtration takes place at any time.
