Eduardo first came to our attention through fellow Tenerife native Roberto Santana (Envínate), who strongly recommended we get in touch before someone else snapped him up! We’re happy we did as they turned out to be fresh, characterful wines possessing a true sense of place. Eduardo moved to Sicily in 2012 to work harvest as an intern at Arianna Ochippinti’s cellar in Vittoria.
He now divides his time between working at Pasopisciaro and running his own project. He rents two hectares of vineyards on Etna, divided among three different plots, and vinifies everything at Arianna’s winery. Eduardo is wholly committed to organic farming and does everything by hand. His focus is on the classic local black grapes, the noble Nerello Mascalese and its usual vineyard companions like Nerello Cappuccio. Despite his young age, Eduardo is already making a name for himself as one of the new Etna winemakers to watch.
The Rosso Versante Nord is a powerful and volcanic wine made from grapes of Nerello Mascalese and other local varieties. It has an intense ruby red color. On the nose, aromas of red fruit, including cherry and plum, with mineral and blood notes. In the mouth it is classy, elegant with a beautiful mineral trace, characterized by a subtle tannic texture and a finish of great personality and persistence.
