Azienda Agricola Crasà SRC Etna Rosso 2016

The winery is in Calderara of Randazzo on the spectacular northern slopes of Mount Etna. I’d argue that SRC are one of the most exciting wine producers on earth at present, not said with any hint of irony or overblown statement. Extraordinary wines have emerged from their rugged vineyard sites of Crasà, Calderara and Rivaggi. Amongst the older vines are fruit and olive trees, wild herbs, thirsty earth and tell-tale volcanic stone and remnants of lava flow. The omnipresence of the smoking Etna looms in the background of these vineyard sites of the northern slopes. Low-fi winemaking here, concrete fermenters, no additions, no filtering or fining.
