I Custodi Etna Rosso 'Pistus' 2016

Located within Sicily’s smoky Etna region, I Custodi’s vines are deeply rooted into the appellation’s volcanic soils, creating a serious sense of place within the wines. Fruit for ‘Pistus’ comes from sandy, volcanic soils, macerated, whole-cluster fermented, and aged in concrete. Savory and spicy, the wine’s dark fruit flavors and violet undertones pair gorgeously with lamb, grilled veggies, and meat ragu.


Nerello Mascalese

As grown on Sicily’s Etna volcano this grape is gunning for “Pinot Noir of Italy” status making its case with velvety tannins perfumed cherry fruit and a finesse born of high-altitude viticulture.
