Puritani Etna Rosso DOC Valenti cellars

The very ancient pre-phylloxera vineyards, the extraordinary lava terroir of the Guardiola district in Passopisciaro, and Valenti's careful and sustainable viticulture make Puritani an excellent red wine emblematic of the Etna DOC denomination. Body, structure and character distinguish this complex Nerello Mascalese. Its extreme finesse makes it pleasantly drinkable.
