The Corinto Nero, just as the Malvasia di Lipari, is a native vine of the volcanic Aeolian Islands. In this case it is pure and harvested form the vineyards on the island of Lipari, which are located in an old crater called Fossa del Monte (pit of the mountain).
These plants survived the philloxera attack thanks to the composition of the soil in the crater, which contains ash, sand and pumice.
One century year-old ungrafted plants (about half a hectare), and grafted plants (one hectare), give birth to this wine.
The vineyards face south-west and are 300 meters above the sea level.
This wine ages partly in oak barrels and partly in steel tanks for about one year.
Tasting notes: Intense ruby color, red fruit flavors: cherry, blackberry, pomegranate, a hint of spices, elegant tannins. A balanced wine.
