Perfectly integrated into the Etna landscape, the winery will rise in the center of Tenuta San Lorenzo, set between the rows and the olive grove that will frame it, perfectly embodying the corporate values: respect for nature, and environmental sustainability.
Vineyard and variety: At the north-western end of the Doc Etna area, between the districts of San Lorenzo and Campo Rè, at 765 meters above sea level the vineyards of the estate extend for 8 hectares on ancient volcanic soils. The original vineyard of Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccino planted in the mid-1900s has recently been joined by the modern plant of native white grapes: Carricante and Catarratto.
Soil and climates In the Etna region there are substantial climatic differences, not only compared to the rest of Sicily, but also between one side of the volcano and the other. Here the strong temperature range between day and night, the remarkable ventilation typical of the Alcantara Valley, the richness of the mineral composition of the volcanic soil and its constant water availability are the fundamental elements so that the native vines can fully express their territory with elegance and minerality.
