The best red wines from volcanoes

Over the past few years, Etna's red wines have received numerous awards from the main Italian guides and from the most authoritative international magazines, winning the attention of enthusiasts. They have been the champions of a more general rediscovery of the great vocation of volcanic soils for viticulture. The soils of stones, sands and lapilli, scarce of organic matter, but very rich in mineral substances, have always proved to be perfect for the vine. In addition to the volcanoes of Etna, the Aeolian islands and Vesuvius, there are many other territories of our peninsula rich in soils of ancient volcanic origin, even if for millennia without eruptive activity, just think of the area of Gattinara or the ancient volcano of Vùlture. We have chosen a selection of the most representative reds of this particular type of wine, which will amaze you with their original personality and character.
