Fruit of the mountain viticulture practiced on the northeast side of Etna, the Cavanera Rovo delle Coturnie Etna DOC 2014 was born following a vintage, still today, remembered for its exceptionally uniform, balanced climate and without excessive heat waves. A happy conjuncture that has given the best grapes from the qualitative and phytosanitary point of view, thanks to a slow and perfectly balanced maturation of the bunches.
“The goal of Firriato is not to receive awards – says Federico Lombardo di Monte Iato, COO of the company – but it is undeniable that discovering that a wine on which it has worked so much is receiving such appreciation, especially if a guide like that of Gambero Rosso, can not but be a source of great pride for all of us: it confirms the success of a production style able to give the right value to the oenological productions that are born in Sicily “.
Etna Doc wine, the Cavanera Rovo delle Coturnie Etna DOC is born from the union of the two red grape varieties belonging to this area of eastern Sicily: Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio, growing in a vineyard exclusively dedicated to the birth of this label, selected vines because of the vegetative superiority of the grapes, the quality of the waters and the microclimate. A red cru that is a real jewel of the volcano, whose typically black and sandy soils are characterized by a high drainage capacity.
“The Cavanera estate – concludes Federico Lombardo di Monte Iato – is designed to be a natural laboratory where to make those great wines of Sicily destined to last over time. Cavanera Rovo delle Coturnie Etna DOC 2014 is a perfect example: an elegant red with a rare balance between alcohol, freshness and tannins “.
