Pietradolce is een familiebedrijf dat al meer dan 20 jaar wijn maakt op Sicilië, Italië. Het wijnhuis is gevestigd in het dorpje Piedimonte Etneo, aan de voet van de Etna-vulkaan.

De wijnen van Pietradolce worden gemaakt van inheemse Siciliaanse druivensoorten, waaronder Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio en Carricante. De wijngaarden van het wijnhuis bevinden zich op de hellingen van de Etna, een ideale locatie voor de productie van rode en witte wijnen.

De Vigna Barbagalli Rosso Etna is een van de topwijnen van Pietradolce. De wijn wordt gemaakt van 100% Nerello Mascalese druiven die worden geoogst uit de Barbagalli-wijngaard, een van de oudste en meest prestigieuze wijngaarden van de Etna.

De wijn heeft een dieprode kleur en een complex aroma met tonen van rijp fruit, kersen, pruimen en aardse aroma's. De smaak is krachtig en vol, met een lange afdronk.

James Suckling: "Lots of pumice, smoke, dried meat and dried cherry aromas that follow through to a full body with lively acidity and chewy tannins. Tight, still needs two or three years to open. Made from ancient vines: 80- to 100-years-old."

Lots of pumice, smoke, dried meat and dried cherry aromas that follow through to a full body with lively acidity and chewy tannins. Tight, still needs two or three years to open. Made from ancient vines: 80- to 100-years-old. Try after 2028.

Michele Faro's top-shelf red is the Pietradolce 2018 Etna Rosso Barbagalli, with fruit from a stunning amphitheater of twisted, ancient vines, each with its own distinct form and shape. This vineyard is a sight to see, and I highly recommend a visit to this special place. In the summer, ashy volcano soils feel like fine powder. Black lava stone walls trace the perimeter of this little cru. This vintage is tart and fresh with lots of sour cherry and hints of wild herb that vividly recall the wild fennel that grows in the spring. You might also get caper flower, candied orange and violet. The 2018 vintage had some challenges in terms of rain and summer heat, but these old vines have the deep roots and bulk to withstand changing weather patterns. Only 2,500 bottles were made from this site.

I met Michele Faro last summer at his estate, and although I have visited the winery many times in the past, there always seems to be something new to admire in terms of winery equipment or art installations. What doesn't change is the beauty and majesty of the high-elevation vineyards located just above the modern winery on a dusty path. Michele Faro farms some of the most beautiful vineyards on the volcano, with ancient, pre-phylloxera vines protected in a little amphitheater surrounded by lava rock walls. This is not an old winery, but it is entering a chapter in which it can present some older vintages from the library. We tasted four wines to get a better sense of the aging potential of Carricante and Nerello Mascalese. Specifically, we tasted the 2014 and 2016 Etna Bianco Archineri, the 2007 Etna Rosso Archineri and the 2010 Etna Rosso Barbagalli. You will find my notes in this report. Pietradolce is also introducing a new wine, the 2019 Etna Rosso Feudo di Mezzo
