Palmento Costanzo

New and Exciting From Mount Etna
August 29, 2019

 

Palmento Costanzo

 

Certain areas on Mount Etna in Sicily are providing the hottest wines in the market. There is a lot of restoration and investment going on. Palmento Costanzo is a new property that is doing it all. Mimmo and Valeria Costanzo bought and completely restored a 19thcentury cellar in Passopisciaro on the north side of the mountain. This is a very exciting project with great authentic wines That come from vines in the traditional Alborello little tree shape that is best for healthy older vines.
