Story of the wine:
The wines produced from the vineyards surrounding the Etna volcano are the new, re-discovered wines of the last decade. In the 1990s Etna was on its death bed with just a handful of producers. Then in the 2000s the region and the local grape varieties were recognised as being capable of making great wines. The vineyards are all in local districts called Contrada, each of which has different characteristics to bring to its wines. Cottanera was founded in the 1990s by Guglielmo Cambria together with his brother Enzo and is now recognised as being one of the key wineries that sparked the Etna revival. Red Barbazzale is made from a blend of Barbazzale Rosso, Nerello Mascalese with a low percentage of Nerello Cappuccio grapes.
Grape(s): Nerello Mascalese and a small percentage of Nerello Cappuccio
Area: Contrada Cottanera, Castiglione di Sicilia
A vibrant ruby red, perfect for first-time wine drinkers. Delightful scents of raspberry and blackberry, wild flowers interwoven with light mineral scents. Very pleasant freshness on the palate, typical of Mt. Etna.
