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. A meticulous selection is carried out in the vineyard to produce a fresh, mineral, savoury rosé wine, an unmistakeable ambassador for the variety and the terroir.

Climate during vintage 2021

The 2021 vintage began with a mild winter that favoured an early resumption of growth, before sharp drops in temperature in mid-April that slowed development and the growing cycle. Summer saw a period of high temperatures in July that then normalised in August leading to a period of fine weather. In September, some episodes of rain rebalanced the ripening and growth cycle so that we were able to harvest perfectly healthy, well-balanced grapes.
