The vineyards of Vini Eudes are located 750-770 meters on Etna’s eastern slopes: high above the strip of land that separates Sicily’s defining volcano from the Ionian Sea. Giovanni Messina and Laura Torrisi have young plantings of carricante and catarratto and one parcel of ungrafted nerello mascalese vines, planted 100 to 130 years ago. Monte Gorna’s black sand and pumice soils are rich in potassium and minerals, poor in organic matter, and highly porous—ideal conditions for long, slow, healthy vine growth. Giovanni and Laura are committed to organic farming, hand harvests, and clean, temperature-controlled fermentations in stainless steel.

Eudes 2019 Etna Rosso DOC

This Etna Rosso is composed of 80% Nerello Mascalese & 20% Nerello Cappuccio grown organically on Monte Gorna at approximately 670 meters above sea level. The expression in this bottling is intended to be a fresher expression of not just the fruit but of the minerality in these sandy, volcanic soils. The grapes are destemmed and gently crushed before they are macerated, just long enough for the initial alcoholic fermentation. From there the resulting wine is racked off of the skins to complete malolactic fermentation in stainless steel.
