Pietro Caciorgna Etna Rosso Guardoilvento is a superior, Sicilian red wine cultivated from the indigenous Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio grapes on the volcanic soils of Mount Etna. This natural wine strikes you with its vivid ruby red, and delights with a fruity bouquet of cherries and wild berries, underlined by notes of spice and minerality typical of the Etna territory. Its elegant, complex character unfolds beautifully on the palate, presenting a smooth balance between tannins and acidity. Enjoy this full-bodied wine with rich meat dishes or mature cheese for an opulent dining experience. It’s Italian winemaking at its finest.
Guardoilvento expresses the character of the altitude and of the black and stony earth where it was born. Perfumed with intense and delicate aromas, with notes of fresh fruit and spices, with a strong body but with gentle, soft and delicate tannins. Easy to drink at the moment, but even more generous if you know how to wait
