Làvico Duca di Salaparuta

The slopes of Mount Etna have always been the perfect habitat for Nerello Mascalese, in terms of both maturation and aromatic expression. Làvico, produced here in the enchanting Vajasindi estate, sums up Nerello Mascalese’s decisive and slightly wild character in a refined manner and is a true expression of its territory of origin and the volcano.
