On the nose, rhubarb, quinine, beef-stock and bay leaves with some cranberry notes. The palate is juicy with red currant and cherry notes, some peanut and even chocolate, with haunting and pervasive notes of sweet herbs.

Following his passion for fine wine in his home region of Sicily, Antonio Cianci purchased the vineyards in 2000. He named the farm Edomé, which in Sicilian dialect translates as “I did it myself”.  The farm is run together with his daughter, Paola. Edomé is located on the north side of Mount Etna more than 2,300 feet above sea level in the newly celebrated wine producing subzone known as “Feudo di Mezzo”.  The volcano is highly active and plumes of smoke are visible every day above the vineyard. The vines are bred in the alberello form, growing straight up like a tree, which is traditional on Etna. The land is farmed organically and the winery strives for minimally invasive production.
