Etna Rosso Tenute Orestiadi - An "extreme" red wine

The result of heroic viticulture, Etna Rosso La Gelsomina by Tenute Orestiadi belongs to the Estremi line, so called due to the extreme viticulture conditions on Etna. In fact, despite the considerable slope of the land and the strong temperature range, the richness in minerals of the volcanic terroir and the warm Sicilian sun give life to a harmonious, enveloping wine, with unmistakable fruity scents, enriched by balsamic and vanilla notes.
