On the north-face of Mt Etna, Giuseppe Russo tends to his century-old vineyard around the village of Passopisciaro with organic viticulture.
A former classical pianist, Giuseppe founded (and named) his estate in the memory of his late father Girolamo in in 2005.
The vineyards are planted high on lava flows of one of the world's most active volcanos; with mineral rich soils, juxtaposed with an arid, dry climate. As such, the wines of Etna showcase exceptional minerality, as the grapes grown here truly highlight the unique topography of the soils.
Each parcel of fruit is vinified individually, creating unique wines that are a true representation of terroir.
