Reborn by the oldest vines of the Aeolian Islands, Corinto Nero is a work of eno-archeology.
It expresses the best qualities of persistence and elegance of its origins.
It is an ancestral wine of ruby red color, which smells of wood and ripe fruit and has an elegant, persistent and vigorous taste.
A 100% pure Corinto Nero selection that shows the unique characteristics of this ancient varietal.
Corinto Nero is an ancient grape of Greek origin, coming from the lands of the homonymous city and introduced in Sicily during the period of the Hellenic colonization.
The strength of the wind, from which the Aeolian Islands take their name, the minerality of the volcanic soils, the knowledge and harmony in the work of our boys in the vineyard, give us the pride of bringing the flag of this variety to the world. Vinified in French oak barrels with maceration for over 10 days, it is racked into barrels for aging for at least a year.
Simply, a great Italian red wine.
"Wonderfully juicy and fresh with super-fine silky tannins. Mouth-wateringly delicious finish"
Julia Harding JANCIS ROBINSON July 2018

Ian D'Agata VINOUS August 2019
An aroma that contains all the colours of the Aeolian Islands, an elegant sip capable of drawing an incredible landscape.
The Obsidian, the volcanic stone par excellence, gives its name to this wine with salty scents and spicy tones: the history of Lipari in a glass
It is crystalline like the white beaches of Lipari, in the mouth it is fresh with salt and sun
L'Ottava Isola is sun and snow, volcanic heat and freshness of mountain where the lava makes the land fertile and rich in minerals.
