The Metodo Classico Etna Blanc de Noir Brut DOC - La Gelsomina is a sparkling wine of extraordinary elegance, born from the volcanic slopes of Mount Etna. Made from a careful selection of Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio grapes, this wine is a true gem of Sicilian viticulture. Its refinement is further enhanced by a 30-month aging on the lees, giving it complexity and structure. On the palate, it stands out for its lively freshness and fruity and floral notes that evoke the Mediterranean scrub and the minerality and sapidity given by the special terroir. Ideal for aperitifs or to accompany fish dishes, it is also perfect for special moments where elegance is key.

La Gelsomina was born on the edge of the Santa Venera stream where Piedimonte Etneo gives way to the County of Mascali, in the small hamlet of Presa located on Etna. From the clayey and lava soil, from the "Gghiara" as the Etna people pronounce it, there are 15 hectares of vineyards, olive groves and orchards that take on the shape of an amphitheater. Here the autochthonous varieties of the volcano Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio, Carricante and Catarratto are grown, as well as Moscato dell'Etna. Thanks to careful vinification, quality wines with a strong character are obtained, capable of surprising for their finesse and delicacy.
