2016 Planeta Eruzione 1614 Nerello Mascalese, Sicilia DOC Italian Red Wine

A constellation of eruption mark the vulcano’s history, and the shape it took over time. The eruption of 1614 is legendary for being the longest history, lasting ten years. The vines used to make this wine actually grow on this lava flow. Nerello Mascalese, and a small amount of Nerello Cappuccio, is cultivated on high altitude black soils and aged in 25 and 36 hl oak barrels for approximately 14 months, resulting in a wine of intense aromas of sour cherry, cherry and beeswax with an elegant structure.
