Lavender, ripe strawberry, red vines, cardamom, straw. Burst of bright boysenberry pie, raspberry hard candy on the palate. Etna's volcanic terroir shines with a tight finish. Balanced softness with edge. 98% Nerello Mascalese, 2% Nerello Cappuccio. le Vigne de Eli is a special project of importer Marco de Grazia; he purchased special parcels of land in Etna near his Terre Nere project, and dedicated producing these wines named for his daughter, Elena, to benefit the pediatric hospital in Florence. A beautiful wine, a beautiful concept.
