ETNELLA, Presentazione Aziendale SOCIETA’ AGRICOLA PRESA, SAS

We are a young agricultural enterprise located on the slopes of Mount Etna. We believe in a conception of wine that is above all humanistic; we promote a responsibility towards the environment, the community, our customers, and the future. Our contrade, or sub zones, are Presa, Linguaglossa, Passopisciaro and Randazzo, and are all based on the northeastern side of the volcano. Each contrada is treated separately, as each parcel has a distinct lava stratification, mesoclimate, and exposition. The resulting wines are a panoply of various expressions of Etna’s terroir. The vineyards are trained in alberello style, or bush trained, an ancient method traditionally used on Etna. The vines are planted on land that is terraced with dry-stone walls constructed with the local volcanic stones so omnipresent on Etna’s slopes. The close proximity of the vines (6,000 - 9,000 plants per hectare) creates fierce competition and forces the roots to point downward in the volcanic soil in search of water and nutrients. The altitude of the vineyards varies from 600 to 1000 meters above sea level. The extreme weather conditions and drastic diurnal shifts (an average of 16°C between day and night) result in wines of great phenolic profile, complexity and longevity. In the vineyards we use only a Bordeaux mixture (copper sulphate), and all fermentations are spontaneous, using only indigenous yeast colonies. The wines are neither fined nor filtered. When possible, we avoid the addition of sulphites, but in rare cases we allow ourselves to add a maximum of 30mg/lt. In addition to wine growing, we farm numerous varieties of olives and fruit that are indigenous to Etna. We produce three crus of extra virgin olive oil and many different types of high quality jams. We have a total of 19 hectares of land: the vineyards, the winery, the cellar, and a traditional style agriturismo made from volcanic stone. It sleeps 14 people and is located in the beautiful village of Presa overlooking the sea and the city of Taormina. CONTACT DAVIDE
