Monte Gorna 'Cru' Wines

Etna DOC wines that challenge the time.
Elegance, complexity and longevity.

These wines are produced from the best grapes grown on the lava terraces of the Monte Gorna vineyard. The low yields in the vineyard, the hand-picking and the careful selection of the grapes give life to these very complex and elegant wines. The volcanic terroir gives them the typical mineral character. The long ageing includes a passage in french oak barriques of 24 months for the red wine and 12 months for the white wine, which contributes to enrich their flavour profile.

Contrade dell’Etna

Etna DOC wines from Monte Gorna and Monte San Nicolò estates.

The Nicosia “cru” wines of Etna come from the Monte Gorna and Monte San Nicolò estates, both located in the Trecastagni area, very close to the wine cellar. Two red wines and two white wines that authentically represent the great variety of expressions that the terroir and native vines of Etna can offer. These DOC wines are the demonstration that on the volcano each slope, each area, each vineyard can produce wines with different characteristics, giving unique and unrepeatable sensations.

Vulkà

Etna, our point of view…
A unique style.

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.

as the land in which it is born
and the sun that inflames it.

Passionate and fiery, like the land in which it is born and the sun that inflames it. Passicato is a blend of overripe native grapes, grown in South-eastern Sicily and harvested only after the intense heat of this fertile and sunny terroir has made them highly concentrated in aromas and color. It has an intense ruby color with violet reflections, a bursting aroma of ripe red fruit, berries and sweet spices, and a very velvety taste.

The Classics

The daily discover of an old pleasure: the Sicilian wine.

The true love for Sicily and its ancient wine-makng tradition; the values of a family whose history has, for more than a century, been intertwined with that of Sicilian wine; the valorization of the most valuable native and international varieties cultivated in the island and the constant search for ever higher quality standards, in vineyards and in the cellar. These are the reasons that explain the success of Classici Nicosia, a wide range of wines with a designation of origin and monovarietals of excellent value for money, capable of representing the great variety and richness of modern Sicilian enology.
