2015 I Vigneri Aurora (Magnum - 1.5L)
From the Palmento Caselle contrada a 2.5 hecatre terraced site 850 metres above sea level on the eastern slopes of Mt Etna. Planted to Carricante (90% ) & Minella (10%) on ripiddu (lapilli & pumice) soils along with volcanic sand vines here are between 4 and 30 years old with a density of 8000 plants per hectare. A different architecture to the Vigna di Milo, the Minella adding a more substantial textural component in the mid palate balancing the laser like acidity of the Carricante. Aurora is named after the small native butterfly of Etna, which is now endangered.
