Passopisciaro - THE Etna Rosso ... MUST HAVE ...

Franchetti Rosso is Passopisciaro's flagship and a stunningly perfect wine. The grapes come from 1000 meters high northern Etna vineyards, where the soils consist of ash and pumice.

With this wine, Franchetti is striving for a pleasure that shows Mount Etna and its character from a completely new perspective. His personal interpretation of an Etna wine was revived a few years ago in the form of the Passopisciaro Franchetti. The cuvée offers Petit Verdot and Cesanese d'Affile the opportunity to complement and enhance each other.


"The Franchetti is a unique specimen that perfectly interprets the high-altitude volcanic soil. Power, structure and then such a linear concentration of aromas: deep scent of black cherries, plums, orange zest and mint. Then comes a clear minerality. Dark ones appear on the palate Chocolate and blueberry flavored with fresh tarragon A great wine to know from Etna." VINUM

"Dark ruby ​​red with a delicately lightening edge. In the nose of ripe heart cherries, paired with cold smoke, mulberries and freshly roasted coffee and a hint of Ras-el-Hanout. Extremely polished and compact on the palate, juicy tannin opens, powerful and with a lot Finesse, keeps coming back, dense, long and balanced." FALSTAFF



The grapes ripen at an altitude of more than 800 meters above sea level. Andrea Franchetti carries out an intensive green harvest and selects only the best grapes for the subsequent harvest. After fermentation, the winemaker expands the Passopisciaro Franchetti in French oak

An Italian red wine from the slopes of the volcano is almost predestined as a moment of pleasure with a Mediterranean menu with spicy dishes. The Passopisciaro Franchetti goes well with polenta corners with Grana Padano, pasta in a spicy tomato sauce with meatballs and a varied selection of antipasti.

In winter, the red wine also accompanies game dishes with strong notes such as deer, wild boar and pheasant.
