2016 Rivaggi, SRC, Etna, Sicily
S.R.C Vini

A brand new producer on Mount Etna, named after daughters Sandra and Rosario (Rori) and wife Cinzia, the family only purchased their first 0.5 hectares in 2013. Since then the estate has expanded to eight hectares, spread between 600 and 1,000 metres of altitude, planted on historic, and more recent (1981!) lava flows. In 2016, they built a new cellar, accommodating cement and large botti for their wines made from tiny yields. As such, this is the first vintage made in that cantina, and the results are charming: precise and fresh, and bottled with little sulphur, they’re a stunning addition to our range.
