Girolamo Russo

Giuseppe Russo, a trained pianist with a degree in Italian literature, manages the family estate since 2004 and bottles Etna Rosso in three different versions.  The first vintage released was 2005. The vineyards cover 15 hectares, in three districts (contrade): S. Lorenzo (8 hectares, 750-780 metres altitude), Feudo (6 hectares, 650-670 m altitude) and Feudo di Mezzo (1 hectare at 700 metres altitude).  Giuseppe also manages 1 hectare in the Calderara Sottana district.  For the production of his wines, Giuseppe follows the same method as when he used to study the piano: extreme attention to details, but always keeping in mind the final result. The estate is certified organic.  Consultant winemaker is Emiliano Falsini.
