Mt. Etna


We were the first in the country to offer these exceptional wines from Mount Etna. Now, they are very strictly allocated. We had sold all of the 2021s we got and just had the opportunity to get a few more cases.

Theyare made with high-elevation old vines on volcanic soil from Mount Etna’s signature Nerello Mascalese grape. They are all fantastic wines that combine the character of Barolo and Burgundy and are bottled and labeled as Contrada sub-zones. They are all similar. They are all distinct.

The reputation of these wines has soared, so they have become tightly allocated. Please let us know what you would like, and we will fill your orders as best we can..
