Calabretta Cappuccio Sicilia IGT 2011 comes from Nerello Cappuccio grapes grown in Contrada Calderara in Randazzo (700/750 s.l.m), on the slopes of Etna, from 0.30 hectares of vineyard resting on volcanic soils, rich in sand mixed with stones. The sandy soils with a lot of "ripiddu" and covered by a bed of stones, give us an elegant wine, of good structure and extremely long-lived.
