Technical sheet · Planeta Etna Eruzione 1614 Nerello Mascalese
“A constellation of eruption mark the vulcanos history, and the shape it took over time. The eruption of 1614 is legendary for being the longest history, lasting ten years. The vines used to make this wine actually grow on this lava flow. Nerello Mascalese, and a small amount of Nerello Cappuccio, is cultivated on high altitude black soils and aged in 25 and 36 hl oak barrels for approximately 14 months, resulting in a wine of intense aromas of sour cherry, cherry and beeswax with an elegant structure.”
“The history of Etna is studded with the historic eruptions which have shaped it. The legendary one of 1614, lasting ten years and the longest ever recorded, halted right on the border of the vineyards of Sciaranuova. A strongly evocative name for our Cru dellEtna based on Nerello Mascalese. High black lands confer an elegant style, refined and balanced.”
