Thank you for the recommendations. I will try Passopisciaro" and "I Vigneri di Salvo Foti". It is like another world of great wines discovered!

    3/31/2014 12:56:00 PM - I love so much the Etna wines! They are very distinctive Sicilian wines, unusual for the Mediterranean climate of Sicily. The Etna are almost "mountain wine", extremely fine wine and with very complex nose. Are more similar to a Barbaresco (or a Burgundy), that other Sicilian red wines (Nero D'Avola, etc.). Tenuta delle Terre Nere make several individual crus of great quality. I like very much also "Il Quadro delle Rose Feudo di Mezzo" and "Calderara Sottana". The "Prephylloxera La Vigna di Don Peppino" in Italy is very known and appreciated, and has had many major awards. If you get the chance I recommend also the other best producers of Etna wines: "Benanti", "Passopisciaro" and "I Vigneri di Salvo Foti". They are all great winery and they make really very fine wines. Ciao from Italy! Cheers!
