Sicilia « En Primeur » 2012 : A video with Salvo Foti about Etna wines
Last week, Sicilia "En Primeur" 2012 was an excellent opportunity to taste the new 2011 vintage but also to visit sicilian wine estates. Of course Etna is an important place that make some of the greatest wines in Sicily as it is explained in this new video with Salvo Foti. Three interviews were conducted and the first one is about two wines from Etna: Vinudilice and Reseca.
When you speak about the wines of eastern Sicily and especially the wines from the soils of Mount Etna, Sicily’s famous, majestic volcano, it is impossible to not mention the name Salvo Foti. A native of the city of Catania, Salvo is making wines that are universally recognized as among the best in Sicily for estates such as Gulfi, Benanti, ViniBiondi. A number of years ago, Salvo’s love of the grapes and soils of Etna, in particular, led him to initiate a project called I Vigneri. It takes its name from an association that existed in the Etna region in 1435, Maestranzi dei Vigneri, an association of vineyard workers that greatly influenced the wine culture of the Etna region. Today, I Vigneri is an association between Salvo Foti, other vine experts and local grape growers who bring their long experience among the particular vines of Etna to their work in the vineyard and cellar.
