Eduardo Torres Acosta Versante Nord Rosso

$44.91

Born in the Canary Islands, Eduardo Torres Acosta moved to Sicily from in 2012 to work harvest as an intern with Arianna Occhipinti’s cellar. He now splits his time between working at Pasopisciaro and running his own project. He farms 4.6 hectares of vineyards on Etna, divided among eight different plots. Producing his first vintages at Arianna Occhipinti’s winery in Vittoria, he now has a small winery on Etna.

The grapes for Versante Nord comes from two parcels – Pietramarina and Crasa – on the cooler, north-facing side of Mt. Etna, where vines average 50 years old. The blend is comprised of 85% Nerello Mascalese and 15% Nerello Capuccio. The Versante Nord is classified as IGT as the vineyards are too high to quality for the Etna Rosso DOC.

The grapes were naturally fermented with 10% whole clusters, and macerated for 15 days. Once vinified, the wine is aged in 750 and 3,000 litre Slovenian oak foudres.
