Guido Coffa’s Wine
Etna vineyards and the organic wine of Monaci delle Terre Nere
Monaci’s rich vineyard will give you the opportunity to experience truly organic winetasting.
We till the land the way our fathers used to do : we use our hands! We don’t use any pesticides, fungicides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers. We highly value wild weeds which contribute to the oxygenation and regeneration of the vineyard land. We use the clone of the local vine varieties, and together with Etna DOC, we produce wine from the so called “uve reliquie” (relic grapes) or pre-phylloxera vineyards. Grape harvest is carried out manually and implies a double step selection of the best grapes, in the vineyard and later in the wine cellar.
the wines of the volcano among the best in the world
Etna is the third most important Italian region for wine production, thanks to the extraordinary variety of its lands, its micro-climates and the amazing quality of its wine.
The oenological production of the region is characterized by unique conditions of the land and of viticulture techniques: the volcanic soil , the grape growing up to 900mt above sea level, local vine varieties both red and white; as to red wines: Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio; as to white ones: Carricante and Catarratto.
