THE VOLCANIC WINES OF ITALY BY KERIN O’KEEFE (WINE ENTHUSIAST)
Kerin o’Keefe, in her last article, talks about the volcanic wines of Italy.
Some of the most exciting and intriguing wines coming out of Italy have one thing in common: the volcanic origins of their soils. While the wines of Mount Etna immediately pop to mind, a surprising number of great wines, from the Veneto down to Sicily, hail from volcanic terroirs.
Italy’s volcanic soils impart undeniable mineral sensations that include flint, crushed rock and saline, lending depth and complexity to the resulting wines. Kerin o’Keefe, for representing this particular category of wines, has chosen also our soave classico Staforte.
Here you can see a selection of these long-lived and complex volcanic wines.
