Nick’s Private Selection:
We only have 6 of these 3 packs in the shop and they are one of the coolest things we have ever had at the shop (and if you know me, I think everything in the shop is pretty damn cool)!
So here it is:
Palmento Costanzo bottled three separate parcels of his Contrada Santo Spirito on Mount Etna for the sole purpose of tasting and studying the difference of terroir. Each wine is vinified exactly the same, at the same place, in the same cru within the same village, by the same person with the same aging, but on a different plot of land on the vulcano. He also happened to do this in his EPIC 2016 Vintage, which by sheer chance was the highest rated vintage in the history of the winery.
So basically we have Nerello Mascalese planted on three different tiny plots of land to showcase how different terroir can affect the wine when everything else is exactly the same.
I am absolutely obsessed with these wines and this project.
