Franchetti 20th Anniversary - Magnum

  • Passopisciaro
  • Sicilia, Italy

Method & Production

To mark two decades of creating wines on Mt Etna, Andrea Franchetti has created this limited, one-off wine of only 1550 magnums. Made with hand-harvested Nerello Masacalese grapes sourced from each of our Contradas -Chiappemacine, Porcaria, Guardiola, Sciaranuova, Rampante, Malpasso, Favazza, Santo Spirito and Arcuria. Fermentation in stainless steel for around 15 days and aging for 18 months in large oak and cement.

Tasting notes

The enticing spiciness of Sciaranuova, the structure of Guardiola, the delicate flowers of Rampante, the juicy red fruits of Porcaria and the herbal notes of Chiappemacine come together to create an ethereal representation of this terroir.
