Le Caldere born from fine grapes that gives us a small vineyard located on the northern slopes of Mount Etna about 700 meters above sea level in C/ Calderara Sottana in the municipality of Randazzo, one of the most suitable place for the production of Nerello Mascalese. The low vield of these old vines, about 60 years old, obtained by by thinning and by careful selection at the time of grape harvest allows us a high quality production. The volcanic soil, the strong temperature fluctuations between day and night, combined with the particular micro-climate gives the resulting wine, pronounced notes of minerals, a ruby red color, a vinous aroma and a intense and robust taste, a careful analysis describes the complexity and uniqueness of the territory and climate, characterizing and distinguishing itself from one year to another.

Fig cake and steeped cherry fruit flavors are underscored by a subtle thread of toasty smoke in this medium-bodied red, with gutsy tannins. Accents of candied violet, sandalwood and forest floor linger on the fresh, aromatic finish. Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio. Best from 2022 through 2030. 800 cases made, 100 cases imported.

Blue-flower, Mediterranean scrub and over-mature black-skinned-fruit aromas form the nose. The ripe palate is rather evolved, offering fleshy plum, spiced blue berry and a hint of cinnamon alongside dusty, drying tannins that leave a lean finish.
