Giovi Rosato * Etna, Sicily, Italy 2016

$30.00

Slightly under ripe strawberries and speck. Yes, speck. Equal parts smokey and saline qualities. Blood Orange and weighty red watermelon sprinkled with dried herbs.  This is certainly a step beyond your average summer slugger in the pink department.

Giovi, Etna Rosato 
Etna, Sicily 2016
Nerello Mascalese 100%

Giovi winery is run by Giovanni La Fauci, a master distiller who built his first still at the age of 13. His primary focus is his grappa, but his care and attention to subtleties in aromatics and texture absolutely translates to the small amount of wine he makes as well. He farms his Nerello vines organically and with attention and respect of the lunar calendar, using a small amount of sulphur at bottling for preservation. The rise to prominence for Nerello Mascalese is reflected in some very polished and more modern style wines in the market, but if you’re a fan of the more volcanic earthy, gritty edged Etna wines, look no further than Giovi.
