Passopisciaro Contrada 'g'

  • Varietals: 100% Nerello Mascalese

  • Vineyards: Guardiola is an ancient domain between 800 and 1,000 m (2,600 to 3,300 ft) above sea level, on the edge of the lava flow from Etna’s 1947 eruption.

  • Soils: Volcanic

  • Winemaking: The wines undergo fermentation in steel vats, followed by malolactic and 18 months aging in large neutral oak barrels; this minimal intervention approach to winemaking allows the differences in terroir to shine.
