Nerello Mascalese
Italy - Sicily
Red Varietal - Light
Organic Practices,


Stocks are very limited.

Nerello Mascalese. The vines are between 80-90 years old (pre-phylloxera), and cultivated organically, trained in the alberello method, on the slopes of the volcanic Mount Etna.

At the heart of Pietradolce's philosophy is their love and respect for their land. Combining rich ancestral traditions with modern techniques, they produce wines that embody that respect. Even the winery buildings themselves are a testament to this, built into the land in a "Hypogean" style, so that they flow into the terrain rather than just sit upon it.

Jeb Dunnuck, (93): "Made with Nerello Mascalese from ancient, pre-phylloxera vines, the Pietradolce 2019 Etna Rosso Archineri has a pretty sense of balance with wild fruit, sour cherry, rosemary, lavender and crushed volcanic stone. The wine is relatively lean in texture; however, it also shows significant tannic structure and power."

Wine Enthusiast, (92):  "Underbrush, scorched soil and cedar aromas along with whiffs of blue flowers and Mediterranean herbs form the nose. Austere and linear, the elegantly structured palate offers suggestions of dried cherry and licorice before a rusty nail close. Tight, fine-grained tannins provide support."
