deAetna

etna rosato doc

The name DeAetna, inspired by the title of a Latin pamphlet dated 1494, expresses the sacredness of the oenological universe. Written in dialogue form, the text tells of the ascension to the top of the volcano by a Venetian writer, Pietro Bembo, after returning from his stay in Messina at Constantine Lascaris’s. The description and study of Mt.Etna and its activity assign to "DeAetna" classical and historical mysticism giving the Sicilian wine the most intellectual moment of the encounter at the table.
