To celebrate the 20th year since its first harvest, Andrea Franchetti has bottled a magisterial cuvée of the finest lots from all the estate vineyards with a special-edition magnum of Nerello Mascalese, for collectors and connoisseurs of rare, one-of-a-kind wines. The label is spare and minimal, bearing the name “20 Anni” (20 years), the winery logo, and the personal signature Franchetti on a white background.
Produced solely in 2019, the 20 Anni is a shimmering red quintessence produced in only 1,550 magnums, and it crowns two decades of achievements on Mt. Etna, the distillation of intuitions, passion, expertise, and experience. Says Andrea Franchetti, “I wanted to create a cuvée of Nerello Mascalese from all the contradas of Passopisciaro as an homage to this magnificent earth, to the years that have passed, and to the future that awaits us.”
20 Anni brings together the seductive spiciness of Sciaranuova, the firm structure of Guardiola, the delicate florality of Rampante, the succulent red berryfruit of Porcaria, and the pungent vegetal notes of Chiappemacine, crafting an exquisite embodiment of the Passopisciaro terroir.
