Girolamo Russo

Girolamo Russo Feudo di Mezzo Nerello Mascalese, Etna

Girolamo Russo Feudo di Mezzo is a concentrated and complex Etna Rosso with exciting intensity. It is a single vineyard Nerello made from vines over a century old in one of Etnas prime contrada. The fruit is dark and brooding, with velvety tannins and a voluptuous mouthfeel balanced with harmonious acidity. In 2005, Giuseppe Russo was drawn back to his childhood home on Sicilys Mount Etna to make wine. Named after his late father, he creates elegant and expressive wines that speak of the volcanos incredibly varied terroir. The crus (or contrade) in which Russo grows his grapes are among the finest on Etnas north side, and he conducts all of his production organically.

Girolamo Russo 'a Rina

GIROLAMO RUSSO 'a Rina Nerello Mascalese, Etna Located in the north-eastern corner of Sicily, Girolamo Russo vineyards are planted high on the lava flow of Europe’s tallest and most active volcano, offering mineral-rich soils juxtaposed with a dry climate. The Nerello Mascalese consists of fruit from 3 ‘contradas’ or single vineyards. The volcanic influence evolves gradually in the glass, providing a savoury minerality that rounds out the sensational fruit and spice and long lingering finish. Giussepe Russo, winemaker since 2005, has a hands-off approach (organic yeasts, no fining/filtering etc.) with his organically tended fruit. This Nerello Mascalese is grown on sandy, lava based soils at 650–780m on the unthreatened northern slope of Europe's highest and most active volcano. Matured in second and third use French oak barriques for 14 months. Elegant, supple and complex. The essential Etna Rosso.
