2019 Eduardo Torres Acosta 'Versante Noir' Terre Siciliane Rosso

85% Nerello Mascalese & 15% other indigenous varieties.  Eduardo organically farms parcels totaling about 4 hectares on the north face or versante nord of Mt. Etna. Those parcels are scattered amongst 6 different  districts: Pietramarina, Allegracore, Daini, Friera, Zucconero and Caprieri. The soils are variations on sandy volcanic ash and the elevation ranges from 550 to 930 meters, averaging over 50 years old.

The bunches are hand-harvested, partly destemmed, co-fermented spontaneously with native yeasts and without sulfur or temperature control in concrete tanks. Maceration lasts around 15 days. The wine is aged for 16 months in concrete tanks and old barriques with minimal racking and then bottled without fining or filtration and with a tiny amount of sulfur.
