It is in the volcanic soils of Mt. Etna where the Tornatore family has set deep, centuries old roots. The Tornatores, one the oldest wine growing families on Mt. Etna, have lived in Sicily since 1680 and trace their Etna grape growing back to 1865. That heritage and the Tornatore?s profound respect and understanding of the land is showcased in wines that capture the essence of Etna, deftly balancing concentrated flavors, complexity, freshness and refinement.
Mt. Etna?s multifaceted soils helped bring the 2015 Trimarchisa Etna Rosso wine complexity, structure and full maturity. The wine has luscious, perfumed aromatics and depth, weight and complexity while still retaining approachability in its youth. The palate is rich, dense and layered with a very long, persistent finish. Notes of dried cherry, raspberry, blackberry and rose petals are met by hints of spice and subtle minerality. Well-integrated tannins and zesty acidity will allow this wine to age beautifully over the next several years.
