Eduardo Torres Acosta, 'Versante Nord', Rosso, Siciliane IGT, Italy

£20.99

This is a wonderful bottle of wine. It's modern, inviting, and showcases how good Sicilian wine really is. The wine itself is made up from two single vineyards: Pietramarina and Crasa. They are on the cooler north side of Mt. Etna. Excellent Nerello Mascalese characteristics here with red cherry aromas, spice, mineral, and good acidity and structure. Classy, pure, and simply delicious.

Eduardo moved to Sicily in 2012 to work harvest as an intern at Arianna Ochippinti’s cellar in Vittoria. He now divides his time between working at Pasopisciaro and running his own project. He rents two hectares of vineyards on Etna, divided among three different plots, and vinifies everything at Arianna’s winery. Eduardo is wholly committed to organic farming and does everything by hand. His focus is on the classic local black grapes.
