Product notes

The wines of the Cavanera Etnea estate are part of the elite by birth and are dedicated to exclusivity. Only the extraordinary terroir of Castiglione di Sicilia, on the slopes of the largest active volcano in Europe, could give a wine of such personality. The volcanic soils of the estate are distinguished by their high content of phosphorus, which determines the sugar content of the must and manganese, which increases the resistance of plants to cold.

Winemaking notes

Location of the vineyards from 550 to 700 m above sea level. Manual harvest. The vinification was carried out in steel at controlled temperature in vats. Annual production: 60,000 bottles
