Pietradolce, means sweet stone in Italian and is an ode to Etna. The volcanic soil covering the slopes is very stony, sandy and mineral-rich. The Etna volcano’s abundant mineral components and microclimate cool nights, warm days and wide-ranging temperature variations give Pietradolce wines extraordinary richness, minerality, fragrance and depth.
Made from 100% Nerello Mascalese, the Archineri is ripe and fruity on the nose, with distinct spicy and balsamic nuances. On the palate there's some heft, depth, and finesse. If you like Beaujolais Cru, Pinot Noir, or a complex wine with a chill, this is your bottle.
