I SUOLI - ETNA ROSSO PIRIPICCHIO DOC 2018
Piripicchio is the blend from the espalier-trained vineyards of Contrada Pignatone and San Lorenzo which ages in used barriques, for a total of 2,000 bottles per year.
Piripicchio 2018 is the most jovial and direct expression of the 2018 vintage grapes grown on the north side of Etna, grapes from vineyards with an average age of about 60 years that allow the production of a wine of great elegance and of great freshness.
A wine obtained by winemaking grapes with traditional techniques in a modern key able to best represent the fascinating world of Etna wines. Lively and elegant wine, as well as its cheerful and sunny label, depicting hands playing with that grainy earth rich in lapilli and great energy.

Three friends with a love for wine and the desire to dare.
Thus was born with this motivation a new company on Etna.
I Suoli brings together three great names of the Italian wine industry:
Emiliano Falsini, a renowned oenologist of great names in wine, is an oenologist in perpetual movement. Giuseppe Russo, owner of the Girolamo Russo winery in Passopisciaro, one of the most important wineries on the volcano and the third is Dante Pasqua, a longtime friend of Giuseppe, a small winemaker himself with a vineyard in Calderara Sottana and today one of Girolamo Russo's closest collaborators. On Etna, with the purchase of a small vineyard of just over one hectare in Contrada Pignatone, in Randazzo on the north side of the volcano, they have created an oenological project with the strong desire to do something different and to experiment.
