ASANGUEFREDDO

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.

AT TABLE

FOOD PAIRING

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.
