Nicosia - Vulkà

Vulkà Etna DOC is an authentic interpretation of what the volcano represents to the people living in its shadow: powerful nature and regenerative strength. The same vital energy that can be found in the vibrant minerality of these wines. The volcanic origin and the altitude of the vineyards create a unique combination of elegance, pleasantness and great character.
