Contrada C 2019 Passopisciaro

Discover the Etna wines produced in Passopisciaro by the winemaker Franchetti. One of these extraordinary Sicilian wines is Contrada C, a Nerello Mascalese grown at 550 m asl on the north side of Etna. Contrada C, Chiappemacine, is the lowest of the 5 districts of Passopisciaro. Its sandstone soil, deeply calcareous, makes this red wine full, round and whipping, with a variegated and heady nose, with a surprising taste for its savory-tannic austerity.
