Hierà Rosè IGP Terre Siciliane
This rosé is made from Alicante, Nocera and Nero D’Avola grapes. It is fruity and mineral, recalling the breathtaking sea surrounding the uncontaminated island of Vulcano, where the vineyards are located. The island was called Hierà, meaning “sacred,” by the ancient Greeks, hence its name.
“At Hauner we believe that, given the amazing soils, unique landscapes, and fantastic grapes of the Aeolian Islands, we are honor-bound to create wines worthy of such fruit.”
