The history of Mount Etna in Sicily is studded with the historic eruptions that have shaped it's terroir. The eruption of 1614, the namesake of this wine, is legendary, lasting ten years and the longest ever recorded. A name strongly evocative of Planeta's Cru wines from Etna. The vines used to make this wine actually grow on this lava flow. Nerello Mascalese and a small amount of Nerello Cappuccio, Etna's glorious indigenous red varieties, are cultivated on high altitude black soils and aged in 25 and 36 hl oak barrels for approximately 14 months, resulting in a wine of intense aromas of sour cherry, cherry and beeswax with an elegant structure.

Tasting Notes

The nose is full of extraordinary aromas of incense and herbs, hibiscus and wild fennel. A luminous and lyrical wine which recounts the character and refinement of great red mountain volcanic wines. The tannins of compact texture are extracted with elegance. The sweetness and generosity of wild fruits and currants merges with aromas of incense and a light almost salty touch invites one to return to one’s glass.

Food Pairing

A wine whose character can allow the most audacious pairing with dishes of similar character. Game, dishes with truffles, fish with complex sauces, cheese and salamis.
