Rosso di Montalcino
100% Sangiovese grapes from Montalcino
Rosso di Montalcino was recognized as a designation of origin in 1983, giving the opportunity to produce two designations of origin from the same vineyards for the first time in Italy; Brunello, destined for lengthy ageing, and the fresher, more vivacious Rosso di Montalcino. It can be made only from Sangiovese grapes, and can be marketed only from the beginning of September in the year following that of harvest.
From the Firriato Winery located in Sicily
Firriato winery was established in 1984 by Salvatore Gaetano. Firriato has 6 estates in 3 different types of Sicilian Terroir. Etna (Mountain), Sea (Favignana Island), Hill (Trapani country side)
Etna Bianco “Le Sabbie dell’Etna”
Blend of Carricante and Catarratto.
This wine is vivid example of the white wines produced on Etna thanks to the sensations it gives to the mouth and nose, with the breadth and depth of the sea. Full-bodied and of lingering appeal, it is alive with a captivating and modern freshness. The magnificent fruit of wine-production on Mount Etna.
100% Perricone grapes
Intense dark fruit and color. Aromas of herbs and plum and jam flavors with a finish of black pepper and juniper.
