Davide Bentivegna, Etnella's founder, after having worked for the German company Siemens, left his position to follow his dream to make wine. He had no previous experience or inherited land, so all had to be created from scratch. From day one, Davide wanted to focus on organic farming and natural wine making. Everything kicked off in 2008, but it was in 2010 when the first wine, "Notti Stellate" Etna Rosso was bottled from the first vineyard located in Contrada Galfina in Linguaglossa.
Smoky with earthy minerality and red cherry and plum on the nose, also throwing out hints of fresh raspberries and even floral notes of rose and violet. Great acidity with a tannic structure and a lingering finish.
A true example of elegance from Etna.
