Etna Rosso ‘Calderara Sottana’, Terre Nere

The Calderara Cru is composed of two vineyards, totaling roughly 15ha, at an altitude of 650-700m.  A small portion of Calderara is pre-phylloxera, the rest is 40-50 years old. The soil is extremely rocky volcanic ash overrun by black pumice and solid volcanic rock. Alcoholic fermentation and maceration lasts 10 to 15 days; malolactic fermentation and maturation are carried out in oak.  After 18 months the wine is bottled without filtering.
