Varietal: Nerello Mascelese
Region: Sicily, Italy
Vini Franchetti was one of the first wineries to begin revitalizing viticulture and winemaking on the slopes of Etna. A standard bearer and benchmark producer in the region, known for their terroir-focused single vineyard offerings, the Contrada series.
Their Passorosso is a great entry point for wine from Etna! Like bigger, sometimes spicier Burgundy, these wines are consistently growing in popularity for good reason.
