Feudo Vagliasindi Etna Rosso DOC is a wine obtained from Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio, native grapes grown on the slopes of Etna, in the territory of Randazzo, close to Catania city, at 620 meters above sea level. The volcanic and mineral soil on which the vine stands (low yield, but of high quality, not exceeding 60 quintals per hectare) and the sensitive temperature range (up to 13 ° -15 ° C in July and August) give at this wine an austere character, but at the same time, an intense structure. The important alcohol content is accompanied by a remarkable acidity and complexity, while elegant aromas of licorice, spices and berries anticipate the tasting, which reveals a balance, warmth, harmony and freshness. At the table it is served at a temperature of about 18 °C, combined with first courses of meat sauces, risotto with porcini mushrooms, second courses with red meats and lightly aged cheeses.
