Etna Rosso Outis Ciro Biondi 2019
From nerello mascalese and nerello cap grapes vinified in steel and aged in wood of 225 and 500 liters.
Ruby color, an intense balsamic vinegar immediately stands out on the nose. From the enveloping taste of red berries and excellent minerality.
The Biondi Winery takes care of 3 vineyards in 3 different Crus, all on the south-east slope of Mount Etna, 18 km from Catania, in the town of Trecastagni, since the year 1600. In this area there is a great day-night thermal excursion that reaches even 30 °, sandy volcanic soil draining and rich in minerals.
Founded at the end of the 19th century, it reached its peak in the early 900, thanks to Salvatore and Cirino Biondi. Exported since that time to Europe and to the United States, they win many awards with the wines produced together with another winemaker, founding the Biondi & Lanzafame. After the end of the postwar period, however, the company knew a moment of decline.
The firm restructuring began with Ciro and Stef Biondi in 1999, with a great deal of work in the vineyards and in the cellar, and the objective already achieved of bringing the Blond Company back to the big boom. Today, a new chapter is opened in the family history, thanks to the constant commitment to the quality that has brought their wines to be recognized all over the world with the fame of great wines.
