A rising star in the Etna region, Tornatore is becoming one of the region’s biggest and most respected wineries. Their vineyards are located at an altitude of 1,000 meters above sea level on the north side of this active volcano.

Out of a Sicilian family heritage that traces back to the 17th century, the Tornatore’s Mount Etna wine ventures began in 1865. Today the family’s operations are headed by Giuseppe Tornatore, a businessman whose expertise led to the acquisition of some of the region’s finest north-facing vineyards in the early 2000’s. That heritage and the Tornatore’s profound respect and understanding of the land is showcased in wines that capture the essence of Etna, deftly balancing concentrated flavors, complexity, freshness and refinement.

The company lies in the northern side of Mount Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe. The soils have volcanic origin and were created through the disintegration of lava, ash and stones from previous volcanic eruptions. The climate on the northern side of the Etna is characterized by mild temperatures, and more rain fall reflecting the influence of the Volcano. The combination of soil, climate and the skill of the winemakers, have made the northern slope of Etna an ideal area for the production of high-quality wines. “Our vineyards and our winery are only a few kilometers from our family home. Our entire family is rooted there. We have the greatest respect for this region, and we believe we have a responsibility to be stewards of Etna and to reflect its distinct character in our wines.” – Giuseppe Tornatore

Tasting Notes

A deeply hued rose with aromas of wild berries, ripe raspberry, blood orange, lemon peel.  The juicy aromatics carry onto the medium bodied palate.  The wine has a pleasing salinity and classic Etna minerality and freshness and vibrancy.  Lots of concentration and wonderful length to this rose that will have you craving a plate of fresh seafood, steamed mussels, pasta with lemon and shrimp or any Mediterranean inspired dish. 


A rose made from Nerello Mascalese grapes, from Castiglione di Sicilia, on Etna’s northern slopes.  A few hours of maceration time gives the wine it’s intense crimson colour.  Fermentation and a brief rest period in stainless steel preserves the fresh fruit aromas and flavours.
