Feudo Pignatone Rosato Sciauro

Nerello Mascalese

Feudo Pignatone Rosasto Sciauro is created from a selection of Nerello Mascalese grapes grown organically on thecontrada(an ancient estate usually aligning with an historic lava flow) of the same name in the municipality of Randazzo on the northern slope of Mount Etna at an altitude of approximately 700 metres. The grapes used in Feudo Pignatone Rosato Sciauro come from vines between 30 and 100 years old.

Climate during vintage 2020

The 2020 vintage began with a relatively arid, cold winter and spring that delayed the growing cycle by approximately one week. There were no significant rainfall events until June and only in July did we see abundant rains that led to perfect development of the bunches. The fine weather continued through August, whilst September saw an alternation of rains and sunny days.
