The Vinupetra Etna Rosso is from the ‘Vigna Calderara’ vineyard (.5 of a hectare) in the Feudo di Mezzo area of Castiglione di Sicilia (Etna Nord), 700m above sea level. It is made from the local grape varieties Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio, Alicante and Francisi. The vineyard, extending over 0.5 hectares, is around 100 years old and planted according to the Etnean alberello (bush vines) system in a 1m x 1m scheme, equivalent to 10,000 vines per hectare. Petra means rock in Italian and this is exactly what you get from this wine, a liquid rock and mineral mix with a beautiful shape on the palate and a fine, long finish. This is a special wine from another incredible site. - Importer Note

Details

The "Maestranza dei Vigneri" ("Winegrowers Guild") was established in Catania in 1435. This important association of vine cultivators working in the Etna region was the foundation stone for professionalism in wine growing and production. After 500 years, I Vigneri is today the name of a company of winegrowers and producers operating around Etna and in eastern Sicily. The proprietors are vine experts like Salvo Foti (www.salvofoti.it) and a group of local growers from the Etna region. I Vigneri is the culmination of more than 30 years experience in Eastern Sicily, of historic, social and technical research aimed at achieving "excellence" in wine growing and producing. We have sought to use non-invasive methods and systems, to respect local traditions and our own ancient grape varieties as far as possible, and to avoid the damage that over-reaching ambition and egoism can cause. Our work ethic lies in the pleasure of work well done, without frenzy, in harmony above all with ourselves, and with all that surrounds us: environment, nature, the volcano Etna, which is so much a part of us. I Vigneri is also a holistic system of grape growing and wine production which respects our environment. - Winery Note
