Exclusive collection of classic method sparkling wines produced, in a limited edition, with only carefully selected grapes from the "Cru" of the Etna and Contrada Bonincontro vineyards.

Nerello Mascalese grapes, grown at high altitudes on volcanic soil, prove to be an ideal base for the production of classic method sparkling wines. The Sosta Tre Santi Etna DOC Brut is the result of a long and careful production process. At least 24 months of aging on the lees in the bottle are required to produce a sparkling wine capable of representing, in an authentic way, the unique characteristics of Nerello and the Etna terroir.
