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.
Giuseppe Russo owns around 26 ha of vineyards, half is sold, half is turned into wine. 1 white, 1 rosé and 4 red wines.

Wonderful Nerello Mascalese! Beautiful and attractive bouquet of jamon, black dried fruits, dried herbs, balsamic notes, tobacco and underbrush. Still energetic, complex and yet friendly. Delicious beauty that would only improve in few coming years.
Tasted as part of Il Pirata event.
