Feudo Pignatone Rosato Sciauro is created from a selection of Nerello Mascalese grapes grown organically on the Contrada (an ancient estate usually aligning with a historic lava flow) of the same name in the municipality of Randazzo on the northern slope of Mount Etna at an altitude of approximately 700 meters. The grapes used in Feudo Pignatone Rosato Sciauro come from vines between 30 and 100 years old. A meticulous selection is carried out in the vineyard to produce a fresh, mineral, savory rosé wine, an unmistakable ambassador for the variety and the terroir.

For the 2020 (not this 2021): 93 pts Robert Parker Wine Advocate
This is a gorgeous, organic rosé made with Nerello Mascalese. The Emiliano Falsini 2020 Etna Rosato Feudo Pignatone Sciauro draws its fruit from different sites with vines ranging from 30 to 100 years old. It shows a pale pink color with sweet berry, tart cherry and glossy notes of latex or natural rubber. The wine is slightly sweet but in an unusual way that focuses more on almond or pistachio paste than it does any candied fruit or lemon drop. It ferments in oak and is then racked into stainless steel. This is a terrific buy with only 1,500 bottles made.

Altitude: 700 m above sea level
Fermentation: spontaneous, using yeasts naturally present on the grapes in wooden vessels

Aging: in oak casks for 3 months followed by steel
Appellation: Etna Rosato Doc Contrada Feudo Pignatone
Vintage conditions: The 2021 vintage began with a mild winter that favoured an early resumption of growth, before sharp drops in temperature in mid-April that slowed development and the growing cycle. Summer saw a period of high temperatures in July that then normalised in August leading to a period of fine weather. In September, some episodes of rain rebalanced the ripening and growth cycle so that we were able to harvest perfectly healthy, well-balanced grapes.
