Tasca d'Almerita Ghiaianera Etna Rosso DOC

exemplifies the unique and captivating characteristics that the volcanic terroir of Mount Etna can impart to a wine. This red wine is primarily made from Nerello Mascalese grapes, with a small contribution from Nerello Cappuccio, both indigenous varieties that reach their peak expression in the dark, mineral-rich soils of Etna. The vineyard, located at an altitude between 600 and 750 meters above sea level, benefits from a unique microclimate characterized by significant temperature fluctuations between day and night. This promotes a slow and steady ripening of the grapes, resulting in wines of great elegance and structure. The volcanic soil, rich in minerals, adds complexity and a pronounced minerality to the wine.

The winemaking process for Ghiaianera is meticulous. After manual harvesting, the grapes are destemmed and fermented at controlled temperatures. This is followed by maceration on the skins to extract the maximum amount of aromatic and polyphenolic compounds, giving the wine body and depth. The wine is then aged in oak barrels for about 12 months, followed by additional aging in the bottle. The result is a wine with an intense ruby red color with garnet reflections. On the nose, it opens with notes of ripe red fruits, cherry, and raspberry, enriched by hints of sweet spices, tobacco, and a slight smoky note that recalls the minerality of the volcanic soil. On the palate, Ghiaianera is balanced and harmonious, with velvety tannins and a lively freshness that perfectly balances the wine's structure. The finish is long and persistent, with a pleasant mineral aftertaste. This Etna Rosso DOC pairs magnificently with meat dishes, roasts, aged cheeses, and flavorful pasta dishes. It is a wine that can be enjoyed immediately but also has good aging potential, allowing the discovery of new nuances over the years.
