I Custodi - 2017 Pistus Etna Rosso

Since the age of the Sicels, three millennia ago, vines and wine have been the centre of life in Mt. Etna. Deeply rooted into the appellation’s volcanic soils, I Custodi’s vines are bush trained and manually cared for with only natural treatments, allowing the wines to sing of place, tradition and history. ‘Pistus’ is crafted with the indigenous variety Nerello Mascalese growing on sandy, volcanic soils, fermented in whole-clusters and aged in concrete. Mid-weighted, it's savoury and spicy, peppered with dark forest fruits, sandalwood, rock and violet. Leathery and lingering with thick and velvety volcanic elements, this vino tastes of a Sicilian daydream...
