IGT TERRE SICILIANE
100% NERELLO MASCALESE
Taste the purity of an ancient, cold-forged vine
Asanguefreddo is the traditional Etna wine, produced on the slopes of the Volcano.
It comes from the principal native grape variety, Nerello Mascalese, around which our family history revolves.
Vinified in the old way, it has a delicate, persuasive body that shows its personality best when served cold.
IN THE WINERY
Vinification: cold maceration and fermentation at low temperatures on the skins for a few days.
Ageing: in stainless steel tanks for 4 months.
Asanguefreddo is a light ruby red enlivened with pleasing violet tones. The red fruit aromas are reminiscent of the vineyard and lead to an elegant, persistent, pure wine with a fresh, inviting fragrance.
A meal without wine is like a day without sunshine (Anthelme Brillat-Savarin)
Asanguefreddo should be drunk chilled to show off its inviting, delicate body and enhance the variety’s elegance. We suggest pairing it with pasta with sea-urchins, squid-ink, sarde a beccafico (sardines stuffed with pine-nuts and herbs) and tuna pasta. It makes a good summer partner for meat due to its fragrance and freshness.
