A blend of the different single vineyard sites (known as Contrada) which differs with every vintage. The Rosso is much more approachable in it's youth and is a really fantastic wine - it is entry level for Ppassopiscairo, for lack of a better word. Complex, layered and interesting. It will even get your taste buds thinking.

Winery Note:

"Mount Etna rises through layers of increasingly cold air, higher than the Dolomites. Every night this air slides along the black dust to the vineyards and subjects them to a sudden swing in temperature, which first paralyzes them at first, and then makes them distil sugars and altered, distorted aromas, deviated from what would normally come from the metabolism of a normal Sicilian plant. It's best to do one's viticulture in climatic strangeness, in a pristine and deserted place where one can find powerful images. A winemaker can court these images for years without fully understanding them; in the meantime, he transmits a completely original style to his wines". – Andrea Franchetti

Viticulture on Mount Etna has extremely ancient origins and winemaking in the region is now experiencing a phase of renaissance. The wines are made with nerello mascalese, the grape that grows all over the mountain, and there only. 

It is grown in many different mixes of lava from the old eruptions and at impossibly different elevations. These vineyards are quite separate from each other and are Mount Etna’s distinct - and accurately mapped - crus, here called Contrade.
