Feudo di Mezzo Etna Rosso DOC

100% Nerello Mascalese. Pietradolce “Feudo di Mezzo” Etna Rosso DOC is modern and precise, with notes of strawberry, red plum, mandarin orange zest and wild thyme. Medium-full body, soft tannins and a stunning finish. Magnificent even right away.

At the heart of our philosophy is a love for our land which is equalled by the respect with which we treat it. Pietradolce is a boutique winery that works in traditional ways, using mostly pre-Phylloxera vineyards at 900 meters (about 3,000 feet) above sea level on the northern slopes of Mount Etna.
