A blend of Nerello Mascalese, Grenache and white Grecanico, Carricante and Coda di Volpe from very old vines. Eduardo wasn't allwed to use the vineyard name because the site is too high to fall within DOC Etna Rosso rules, so he named it after the local road Quota Nave! It's fresh and juicy with hints of roses, red berries, minerals and dusty earth. The perfect match for game or mature cheeses.

About Eduardo Torres Acosta

Tenerife native Eduardo Torres is making fresh, characterful wines on the slopes of Mount Etna. He moved to the island to intern with Arianna Ochippinti and now divides his time between working at Pasopisciaro and running his own project.

His focus is on the classic local grapes, Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio. Despite his young age, Eduardo is already making a name for himself with his fresh, characterful wines possessing a true sense of place.
