SRC is a small family operation located on the famous northern slopes of Mt. Etna on the island of Sicily, and takes its name from the first initials of Rori and Cinzia, and their daughter Sandra. As a double meaning, when you say the words SRC together, it sounds like the Italian phrase 'essence' meaning: 'We are here.' The high elevation and steep slopes of Etna are full of tiny plots of terraced vines, fueled by fresh and rejuvenated volcanic soils that create truly one of a kind grape, that arguably taste of its place more than anywhere in the world.

Tasting Notes

SRC Rosso is an elegant, taught and dynamic red wine from red grapes Nerello Mascalese, cultivated in the dark volcanic sands and vinified in cement vats. Intense ruby red color. It has a fresh and fruity aromatic profile, rich in mineral and pleasantly smoky hints. The palate is taught, fresh and agile, with many savory aromas and lively tannins on the finish.

Food Pairing

White and red meats. Excellent with starters, goes particularly well with Pasta alla Norma topped with grated Ricotta Salata.
