Pietradolce

2019 Etna Rosso, Pietradolce

Sicily, ItalyVintage: 2019

Pietradolce’s single-vineyard bottlings are among Etna’s most highly regarded. Pietradolce is all about the terroir and this 2019 Etna Rosso is made from 100% Nero Mascalese grapes grown at 800m on the northern slopes of Mount Etna.  The vineyard has rich volcanic soils and an intense day/night temperature swing which helps to provide their wines with extraordinary richness, texture, aroma and depth.

In the glass this wine opens with fragrant aromas of cherry, raspberry, herbs, chocolate and spice are joined by a subtle saline tang. It’s a similar theme in the mouth, with herbs and spice dancing around the core of vibrant, juicy raspberry and cherry fruits. Creamy softness emerges on the mid-palate, as well as some tannic grip, leading to a long, fresh, slightly saline finish that leaves you wanting another sip.

A perfect introduction to the beautiful wines of Sicily.

 

 

Notable Awards

91 points, Decanter Magazine ” There is a Pinot-like elegance to this wine, perfectly married to a wilder, quintessentially Sicilian character. Cranberry, wild strawberry and blood orange hover over wet stone and graphite notes. Energetic and seductive in equal measures. Drinking Window 2022 – 2026″

Description

Established in 2005, Pietradolce stretches over 11 hectares of high-altitude vineyards on Etna. At the heart of the winery is an unashamed passion for their land and the utmost respect for the autochthonous grape varieties Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio and Carricante. Etna’s volcanic soils and some old, pre-phylloxera vines give birth to some of the most vibrant wines in Sicily. Pietradolce’s range is crafted with a real sense of terroir, incredible purity, concentration and longevity.

Made with 100% Nerello Mascalese grapes which are hand-harvested and with skin contact of 18 days before ageing for three months in French oak barrels.
