Passopisciaro 2021 Mixed Case

Sale price $670.00

Take a journey up the steep slopes of mount Etna - where the vineyards disappear into the clouds and the terroir is influenced by lava spills of recent past.
"There’s no mold, no moss; the ground sparkles black like the night; the wine slowly becomes very elegant and strange. During the day a soft light penetrates everything and then there are starry nights; Etna has enormous poetry. Making wine, you have access to it. There isn’t Mother Nature here. You are conducting your viticulture on stuff that comes out of the terrible below.” – Andrea Franchetti
Included in this case of six are two bottles of each:

Passopisciaro Contrada PC Bianco 2021

100% Chardonnay. Expressive with bright acidity. Stoney minerality and wild honey with saline and lemon zest.

CONTRADA PC comes from a minute parcel of chardonnay planted on small and laborious terraces between 870m and 950m above sea level, where the production is naturally limited and the maturation very particular and complex. 

Passopisciaro Contrada G Terre Sicilia 2021

100% Nerello Mascalese. Wild cherry, violets and anise. Mineral and slightly smokey with dusty tannins. A deep and complex wine with a rich taste of red fruit. Great depth!

Contrada Guardiola is an ancient district located between 800m and 1000m above sea level, on the edge of a recent lava flow of 1947 that stopped just before the vineyards. Only the grapes selected from the oldest vineyards are used for this cru that they started to produce in 2011. Vines are 70 to 100 years old, located on the north side of Mount Etna.

Passopisciaro Contrada R Terre Sicilia 2021

100% Nerello Mascalese. Crunchy and floral, with notes red currant, Austere, with grainy tannins and a great acidity. Finest, most aromatic wines because of the sandy character that the lava has acquired.

Contrada Rampante is the winery's highest cru at 1,000m above sea level. At the highest confines of viticulture on the northern side of Etna, Rampante is ancient contrada, producing one of volcano’s finest, most aromatic wines because of the sandy character that the lava has acquired. Due to the altitude, it is typically the last contrada to ripen. The winery owns and cultivates 1.4 hectares on this domain. The average age of the vines are over 100 years old!
