Volcano! One of the largest producers in the region, Tornatore owns 46 hectares of vineyards on the north side of Mount Etna, 1,000m above sea level. The estate was founded in 1865 and is still run by the third generation of the same family. One of the oldest and largest producers in Etna, Tornatore has 10 per cent of all production in the area.
The focus is on native grape varieties Nerello Mascalese, Nero Cappucci, Carricante and Catarratto, while their winemaking style is more modern in its approach, with lower alcohol and more emphasis on fruit.
Fruity on the nose, this wine shows red berries, morello cherry and black cherry. A persistent, full flavour with a hint of minerality and balanced tannins.
