From the vineyards grown on the black sandy soils of the Volcano comes Cavanera Rovo delle Coturnie Etna DOC, a red cru blend of Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio. This treasure from the volcano tangibly expresses the sensory characteristics and uniqueness of the grapes in the estate’s Single Vineyard. This vineyard is exclusively dedicated to the production of this label, and has been selected for the superior foliage of its vines, quality of its waters and its microclimate. Cavanera Rovo delle Coturnie is a wine with exceptionally mineral aromas which stands out for its alcoholic elegance and spicy aromas typical of Nerello Mascalese. It displays a light ruby red color, erupting in the glass with an intensity of aromas of small red fruits. Full-bodied flavor and seductive tannins are its dominant characteristics.
