contrada Blandano

etna rosso doc

Contrada Blandano is born from a selection of our best grapes, from our passion, time and patience.
To produce our Contrada Blandano we only use the grapes of the old vines, making a careful selection during ripening in the vineyard and at the time of harvest. We try to bottle only the best of what the Viagrande area can offer. A long aging, both in cask and in bottle, gives the wine complexity, structure and elegance.
