Calmarossa comes to life from the crater named Mount Ilice, on the western slope of Mount Etna. This beautiful mountain overlooks the Ionian Sea and is characterized by an extreme declivity and its fine black sand and volcanic ashes. The soil is rich in minerals that come from the depths of our planet, making it the perfect place to grow vines and fruit trees.
Here, for entire centuries, many generations of winemakers followed one another, tending and managing these extreme vineyards and working and striving with passion. They were constantly rewarded by Mother Nature with genuine wines, examples of an entirely volcanic terroir. During the last 50 years this ancient pre-phylloxera vineyard, at the altitude of 800 meters above sea level, has been grown with true love and intimate devotion according to biodynamic farming principles.
