Travel to Sicily this week on a brand new episode of In the Drink! Joe Campanale is joined by Giuseppe Russo. Giuseppe is 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 released vintage was 2005). The vineyards extend for 15 hectares and stand in three districts (contrade): S. Lorenzo (8 hectares, 750-780 meters altitude), Feudo (6 hectares, 650-670 m altitude) and Feudo di Mezzo (1 hectare at 700 meters altitude). Furthermore, Giuseppe 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. This program was brought to you by Michter’s.
