Calabretta Description

The wines from Calabretta hearken from the DOC of Etna Rosso in Northeastern Sicilia. The grapes here are primarily the indigenous Nerello Mascalese along with small plantings of Nerello Cappuccio. The vineyards are planted between 300 and 900 meters on the slopes of Mount Etna, an active volcano that looms in the distance for much of eastern Sicilia. The soils are a combination of black volcanic ash and sand which are fine and almost silty, with lots of lava rocks and good drainage.
