Tasting notes (from the distributor): 

From the distributor: This winery was founded around 1850 by Baron Felice Spitaleri di Muglia, a wealthy entrepreneur and admirer of Bordeaux and Burgundy wines. The vineyards were destroyed by phylloxera in the early 1900's, save for a tiny parcel of about 100 vines. Spitaleri's direct descendants and present owners, Arnaldo and Felice Spitaleri, replanted in 2003. They continued the family tradition of wine-making using clones of French varietals planted in 1855. These have already begun to mutate, and are now considered Sicilian. The estate has about 15 hectares of vineyards, 800 to 1000 meters above sea level on the slopes of Mount Etna
