Parossisimo Etna Rosso DOC 2012
(paros'sizmo), has two meanings :1. an outburst of a particular emotion, 2. the most violent eruption of the volcano. This is exactly what leaded us to this wine made by grape from a single vineyard in a small area (the local definition is contrada) called “CALDERARA SOTTANA” and able to delivery some of the highest temperature of the volcano’ slopes on a dark soil extremely rich of rocks. This brings an incredible texture and powerful in this wine representing the highest expression of our best single-vineyard, the first we started working with, the one with the oldest vines, the one always able to surprise in flavors and structure of the wine. We mapped the oldest vines of pure Nerello Mascalese, selected by nature and by the wise hands of the ancestors. Dealing with this vineyard is a terrific work: everything must be done separately and by hand. You can’t be on a schedule, you just give to the vines the time needed, no rush, never stopping. It’s a challenge of physical endurance against the booming fertility of the soil, non-stop delivering any kind of herbs among the vines, trying to slow down the unstoppable rush of the plant towards ripening, giving it the right rhythm, suffering together to delivery, both men and vines exhausted, the miracle of all the magnetic energy of the volcano in the grapes. This wine is liquid stone, this wine is our tribute to the Mount Etna.
