"The name may be delightfully easy to spell and pronounce, but it is its distinctively sultry wines that are so memorable."
Jancis Robinson MW on the wines of Mount Etna

100% organic 

Exclusive Armadale Cellars import

There is no region in the world of wine more exciting than Mount Etna at present.  Steeped in history and marked by lava flows, Etna has borne witness to a vinous revolution over the past decade and a half.

The lure of Etna has drawn a who's who of Italian wine identities, Piedmont's Angelo Gaja being the latest.  Stylistically, the wines of Etna are often compared to Burgundy. The whites make a perfect alternative to Chablis thanks their citrusy profile and saline minerality. Similarly, the reds of Etna are Pinot Noir-like in build, earthy tannins confirming their volcanic origin.

Situated on the south-eastern slopes of Etna at an elevation of 400 metres, Terra Costantino is one of the leading Etna estates.

This mixed six-pack presents a selection of the entry level Etna Bianco and Etna Rosso and the luxurious premium Contrada Bianco and Contrada Rosso from the exceptional 2014 vintage in Sicily. As a once-off, we are applying a 20% discount against the standard retail price, saving you $70.

A mixed six-pack including the following wines:

TERRA COSTANTINO Etna Bianco 2015 x 2 bottles
(RRP - $50 per bottle)

South-east side near Viagrande. 80% Carricante, 15% Catarratto, 5% Minella. Apparently, no oak and six months on the fine lees. Went almost entirely through malo.
"Brilliant straw. Almost a little waxy on the nose and richness like you get from oak. A little subdued but not without complexity, and with aeration, more and more mandarin fruit. Succulent mandarin with a fine, citric nerve."
17/20, Walter Speller - jancisrobinson.com

TERRA COSTANTINO Etna Rosso 2015 x 2 bottles
(RRP - $50 per bottle)

90% Nerello Mascalese, 10% Nerello Cappuccio grown at 450m to 550m. Aged a year in oak tonneaux after a 12-day maceration.
Bright ruby.  Lifted nose of plum, dark cherry and freshly tilled soil.  Light, fine and very bright, slightly earthbound in feel - there's a real sense of place going on here.  Delicous for current drinking.

TERRA COSTANTINO Contrada Blandano Bianco 2014 x 1 bottle
(RRP - $80 per bottle)
75% Carricante, 25% Catarratto. Just 2,000 bottles produced.
Bright silvery yellow in appearance.  Wonderful aromatics - sea spray, ozone, lemon citrus zest and savoury herbs.  Not unlike a Grand Cru Chablis in build, though perhaps a touch more forward, in a good way.  Would be superb with seafood.

TERRA COSTANTINO Contrada Blandano Rosso 2014 x 1 bottle
(RRP - $80 per bottle)
From the exceptional 2014 vintage.  90% Nerello Mascalese, 10% Nerello Cappuccio.  Selection of best fruit.  Vinified in concrete tank, French oak tonneaux and large barrels.
Bright ruby.  Alluring nose of dark fruit intermingled with exotic spice and cocoa powder.  Earthy notes.  Rich and plush and superbly integrated.  The bouquet flows through to the palate - tightly knit.  A wine for Pinot Noir-lovers!
