"Lenza di Munti 720 slm" is an Etna Rosso produced by one of Mount Etna's largest and most important wineries. Cantine Nicosia is a historic winery located in Trecastagni, on the southeast side of the volcano. The Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio vines are cultivated at 720 meters above sea level, ensuring a cool climate with significant temperature variations between day and night. The soils are of volcanic origin, composed of sands and rocks from volcanic decomposition, particularly rich in mineral substances. After manual harvesting, the clusters undergo cold maceration for 24 hours, followed by fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 22-24 °C and maceration on the skins for a few weeks. The wine matures for about 4 months in stainless steel tanks, except for a small portion in tonneaux, and completes the ageing period with an additional 6 months in the bottle before being released to the market.
