The Italian identity is also in its wines
The Italian wine has never been a single wine and, today more than ever, an Italian wine is different from any other wine, Italian and not.
Excuse the word game but, in a global market that would like standardized wines as if it were alcoholic beverages produced industrially, in Italy there is increasingly a cultural identity that wants to exalt and enhance the differences between the various wines produced in the various areas suitable to viticulture.
Italy boasts a particularly large wine-growing heritage, made up of many vines still present in the vineyards of the whole peninsula.
We don't let the taste of wine flatten
The World Wine Panorama sees the production of wines made by the use of very few varieties of grapes, such as Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and a few others. They are grapes of easy cultivation and excellent production yield compared to the autochthonous vines which, instead, are strongly dependent on their environment of origin and which, if transplanted in other areas, do not meet the qualitative requirements expected.
This tendency is causing a flattening of the taste of the wine and a certain uniformity of the wine productions, which are similar even if coming from areas far between them.
We at Wines of Etna will help those who, like us, do not want to drink a wine, but want to taste in every wine the uniqueness of genuine sensations, simple, but at the same time complex, that only different terroirs and strictly related to the environment can give.
Italy, and Sicily in particular, are rediscovering and reevaluating the ancient autochthonous vines. In Sicily This has already happened with Nero D'avola, and is taking place with the indigenous vines of Etna: The Nerello Mascalese, the Nerello Cappuccio (Hood), also known as Nerello Mantellato (cloaked), the Carricante, the Minnella and the Catarratto.
The Etna territory, with its peculiar aspects, constitutes an area for the production of unique wine, which is outside the island context in which it is inserted.
The wines produced on Etna have strong personality: they can resemble each other but each other and different from each other; It has different features, age, character and smells.
In the wine of Etna the differences depend on the vines, the type of soil, the age of the vines, the climate, the exposure of the vineyard, from the thermal excursions, from the surrounding vegetation, from the type of plant, from the conduction, from the process of vinification and refinement and from all those factors that combine to create a wine that differs from another wine for countryside, for vintage, by producer , although they have been produced with the same type of grape.
The French have summed up these differences with a single term: "Terroir" and the wines of Etna can boast countless terroirs, dare say "a terroir for every wine".
The territory of the Etna wines
The areas most valued by the Etna wine-growing are three: the hills of the south Slope and the Eastern Hills particularly suitable for the production of fresh and fragrant white wines, but also rosé and red of good body and the hills of the northern slopes that stand out for the ability to produce even red wines bodied and structured suitable for ageing, with Mediterranean climate , milder up to 600 Mt. and strong thermal excursions between day and night up to more than 1000 MT, long periods of light and sunlight, soil of a well drained lava nature, tending to the sandy and sometimes clayey and rich in minerals, conditions that distinguish Etna from the rest of Sicily and Italy wine, a niche of excellence for the natural and easy adaptation of the autochthonous grape varieties and alien to the terroir.
Thus, on Etna, they found their natural habitat, in addition to the autochthonous Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio or Mantellato, Carricante, Catarratto and Insolia, Moscato and Nero d'Avola, the alien Cabernet, Syrah, Merlot, Viognier, Pinot Noir, Petit Verdot, Chardonnay, Cesanese and others, today with centenary vines with saplings and new vines cultivated at espalier, most of which are carried out in biological regime then treated with only copper and sulfur
The Etna has saved the wine
Yes, let's talk about century screws; That's right. Because on Etna, the vineyards were free from the phylloxera epidemic, which destroyed the vineyards around the world in the second half of the 1800s. Etna, with its sandy soil heavily aread, has not allowed the phylloxera to suffocate the roots of the vines. So today we can have the unique pleasure of enjoying wines born from century vineyards on ungrafted, cultivated in organic, avoiding also the eradication of herbs during the growth and ripening of the grape that is also enriched by the smells and scents of the welcome herbs, so-called weeds, but that better can be appealed as cohabiting and collaborating to the production of unique wines... even for the grass , which also makes terroir.
