For a’Rina, Giuseppe sources grapes from almost every vineyard under his management - San Lorenzo, Feudo, Calderara Sottana and Feudo di Mezzo. The juice ferments in stainless steel tanks and small open vats for ten days. Then the wine spends 12 months in 2,600 L Slavonian oak casks and concrete tanks.
Making wine on the slopes of Mount Etna is an intensely personal, profound and ongoing act of love.
Some are just ‘lucky’ to be affiliated with Etna by the right of birth. Giuseppe Russo, a graduate of Humanities with a Diploma in piano, re-established the family winery in 2005 and dedicated it to the memory of the late father, Girolamo. Their vineyards cover 18 hectares, surrounded by hazelnut and olive groves.

What a lovely wine! No wonder so many people selected it as the favourite of the evening. A charming bouquet of red fruits, chocolate, red flowers and a forest floor. It’s like a cold-climate Pinot Noir. Delicate, round with good fruit. Alcohol is well integrated. Flavours of cherry confiture, forest floor.
