Winemaker Notes

Pietradolce Vigna Barbagalli is a deep garnet color. The wine has wonderful notes of flowers and strawberries on the nose. Full-bodied with excellent depth and structure. A long, complex finish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
When grapevines die and go to heaven, they wake-up in Pietradolce's Barbagalli vineyard. I have only ever seen a handful of vineyards as beautiful as this spectacular terrestrial handshake between man and volcano. The 2012 Etna Rosso Vigna Barbagalli faithfully reflects the esthetic grandeur of this amphitheater of pre-phylloxera vines planted 900 meters up Etna's blackened slope. On average, these knotted plants are more than 100-years-old. The wine opens to amazing intensity and purity with an enormous sense of integrity and balance. Dark berry fruit segues slowly to spice, leather, balsam herb and crushed mineral as the wine evolves in the glass. The wine's finish is long and determined. Vigna Barbagalli is a revelation if you are looking for a reason to fall in love with Etna.

Another fabulous red from ancient head-pruned vines with cooked plum and strawberry aromas and flavors. Full body, firm tannins and a beautiful finish. Savory and delicious. From 100-year-old vines.

Pietradolce Mario and Michele Faro Winery Image
Pietradolce was founded in 2005 and is set in Solicchiata, a village in the area of Castiglione di Sicilia on the North East slopes of Etna. They have chosen to plant only vines which are native to Etna, grown for the most part in the traditional form as bushes (alberello). This preference comes from the profound conviction that this is what is required by the land which offers them hospitality. Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio and Carricante are and will continue to be the main players in their story.

At the heart of their philosophy lies a deep love and respect for the land on which we depend, getting the best from traditional methods while using with wisdom the latest developments in grape growing and wine making without compromising the environment that gives life to their passion.
