ZOTTORINOTTO ETNA WHITE DOC 2019 - TORNATORE
The cultivation of vines and the production of wine by the Tornatore family is a tradition that dates back to 1865 when the current owner's great-grandfather began farming. Then in 1910, Giuseppe, grandfather of the current owner, built a house and a millstone and increased the hectares of vineyards. A family with deep roots in the territory of origin, which in subsequent generations, has never neglected the attachment and respect for it and for traditions, and thanks to the combination of soil, climate and the wisdom of the winemakers, produces wines of the highest quality but above all special and unique.
The vineyards, cultivated on the northern side of Etna, are located at an altitude of 650 m above sea level, in the municipality of Castiglione di Sicilia with a north-facing exposure.
