Etna rosato doc

Ata is a tribute to Etna's oldest winemaking tradition, rosé. It comes from vineyards located in Milo’s Contrada Salice 650 meters above sea level and bred using the alberello system resting the vines on the wire in medium-textured lava soils. The grapes are hand-harvested in September to ensure high acidity, and after vinification into rosé, fermentation takes place in thermo-controlled stainless steel vats. The wine then ages in stainless steel tanks before finishing aging in the bottle.
