Tasting Note:

San Lorenzo is a vineyard of 70 years old planted at 750 altitude on quite deep volcanic ash interspersed, sporadically, with stones. The terroir is based on very old “Ellitico” soils , dating back to between 15,000 and 60,000 years ago, these are rare and only two crus on Etna are purely composed of it- San Lorenzo and Calderara. San Lorenzo produces tactile, suave wines; incredibly voluptuous rich soft fruit with a velvety tannic structure cloaks the palate. Ageing is 18 months in used oak barriques and tonneaux.
