Tasting Notes: The first vintage of this single-vineyard wine, grown at 700 meters above the sea on Monte Portella with northern exposure. Due to the quality of the vintage pressed for the first time. Arenaria is a mineral rich sandstone formation with marl, quartz and light clay. Here Eduardo leaves the volcanic soil into an area which among the locals is called the "White Land." Planted with 90% Nerello Mascalese and 10% other local varieties, some of which are over 70 years old. 20 days without Temperature control in concrete vats carefully macerated and fermented. Further aging for 11 months in 500 and 600 liter tonneau, as well as concrete vats. A Nerello with a lot of depth and complexity that will still need some time. will need some time. Very angular, fresh, tart and some tannin. The red-fruited, mineral nose is promising and shows the potential of this terroir wine.
