Made on volcanic soils, this wine is a light-weight rose with notes of crushed flowers, stone fruits, and a hint of saline.

From the winemaker, Frank Cornelissen:  “A few years ago we were contacted by Patagonia whether we were interested in doing a project with wine for them. First I thought the mail was spam but it was not. Being a great admirer and user of Patagonia clothing and equipment I was blown away and flattered. Patagonia stands for preserving and developing a sensitivity for nature, which is exactly what we are doing here on Mount Etna producing artisanal, organic wines with respect for nature.

This could not be simply bottling any wine for them and sticking a label on it. This wine had to have a concept. And so I looked at what Etna winemaking represented in the past, different from my approach and vision to winemaking. Pistemutta represents the old-school winemaking on Etna of local farmers, called ‘contadino’. Wines with little skin contact, light bodied, fluid and elegant. This project makes me happy as it takes me back into the history of Etna, before I started producing wines here on Etna.”
