Lenza di Munti 720 Etna Rosso
“Lenza di Munti” Etna Rosso has a complex and intense nose of red berries, aromatic herbs and spices. On the palate it is robust, well-balanced and persistent. It’s a blend of indigenous grapes Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio, grown on the lava terraces located at an altitude of about 720 m a.s.l. on the Southeastern slopes of Mount Etna. This wine combines the typical elegance of mountain wine and minerality due to volcanic origin.
