Tasting Notes

From legendary Etna vigneron, Salvo Foti, the I Vigneri Etna Rosso is everything you'd expect from a great Etna red, and more. It's a 50/50 blend of Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Capuccio, grown in volcanic soils at an altitude of approximately 700m. After a quick decant, the wine absolutely blossomed. Beautiful savoury, earthy tones waft from the glass, highlighted by red fruits and subtle florals, but it's the cured meat/smoky edge that really draws you in. The palate is light to medium bodied, exceptionally balanced, with primary fruit up front leading to a delicate, stony mineral tone towards the finish. It's layered and complex, with fine-boned tannins in support - a stunning example of the Etna terroir. - Felix G

The name Salvo Foti is synonymous with the volcanic vineyards of Mt Etna. Born and bred in Catania, Salvo has a deep connection with the northern slopes of Mt Etna and the wines from his I Vigneri label are a reference point for traditionally made wines in the area. Salvo created the I Vigneri association and label as a vehicle for growers and producers to keep their traditional grape growing methods and winemaking techniques alive and highlight the uniqueness of their incredible history. There are seven producers under the I Vigneri label including Salvo's personal wines which are offered here. Salvo only works with the vines trained in the traditional alberello (bush vines) training system which is typical of the area, the vine is supported by chestnut wood stakes. All of the vines are worked organically, vineyard work is done by hand by the 30 strong I Vigneri team along with Ciccio the mule. The winemaking is very traditional with spontaneous fermentation in concrete and old oak, no temperature control, no fining, no filtration and only a very small addition of sulphur dioxide at bottling and bottling is done according to moon phases. We have shipped three of Salvo's wines which represent a very pure representation of their site and the overall uniqueness of their territory. - Importer Note
