It all starts from the passion transmitted to Roberto by his older brother Enzo, who, attending school under officers of the finance police in Cuneo, met Giuseppe Rinaldi back in 1975 and became passionate about the world of wine when Roberto was just two years old. Over the years the same passion has been passed on to Roberto, who has expanded and enriched it to the point of making wine for home use since 2005. It is from there that he gradually grew up as a self-taught oenologist until he started producing wine from grapes produced in Passopisciaro, a fraction of the Municipality of Castiglione di Sicilia (CT) in a secular vineyard of about 80 – 100 years in Contrada Feudo di Mezzo, at an altitude of 650 m above sea level, on the northern slope of Etna.

Method of Production
After a soft pressing, without remaining in contact with the skins, the must is clarified in a steel tank using more dry ice, after having separated the must from the coarse lees, it is transferred to another steel tank to start spontaneous fermentation at room temperature.
Soft pink color reminiscent of the color of coral. On the nose notes of white flowers and small red fruits such as blueberry and raspberry, many citrus notes of grapefruit and pomegranate, the sapidity and sulphurous notes of the volcano are perceived. In the mouth it is delicate, full-bodied, fresh, harmonious and balanced.
It is very refreshing, suitable for hot summer evenings, but it is also perfect in combination with vegetable-based first courses or fish-based second courses.
