Quota N Vino di Contrada Eduardo Torres Acosta 2019
It is a very beautiful story of Quota N a red wine with a white soul, played on freshness and acidity, almost like a white wine. Eduardo's vinifications are subtracted generally giving space to the fruit, this case the freshness becomes the true backbone of the wine. Acidity and mineral depth. The sapling vineyard is beautiful: about 3 ample terraces arranged like an amphitheater, with their original dry-stone walls from which even the vineyards themselves emerge, and a small stone farmhouse in the center. A wonderful place in the woods, which gives a feeling of pristine and wild. Not far away you can see the top of Etna much closer than the average of the vineyards. Interaction vineyard footless.
Eduardo Torres Acosta
Eduardo Torres Acosta is originally from Tenerife. The father, an island postman, owned a small plot that allowed Eduardo to approach viticulture. Driven by curiosity, he decides to visit Sicily where he meets Arianna Occhipinti and for which he starts working in 2012, to then enter as a winemaker in Passopisciaro. Eduardo thanks to the call of some people of its potential, to find small plots of land for rent and to manage on its own. The search for the vines was manic to finally find small parts of old vines with the greatest possible quantity and plants partly as saplings. All the vineyards are popular on the north side of the volcano, between 600 and 800 meters. Eduardo's approach is the least interventionist possible for wines that are true mirrors of the Etna territory. The current production is around 12,000 total bottles.
