Black Sciare: imprints of Etna that give rise to unique micro-terroirs - Cantina Donnafugata

Black Sciare: imprints of Etna that give rise to unique micro-terroirs

With its eruptions, Etna produces sciare, lava layers, that through long physical-chemical processes give rise to sandy and cultivable soils, on the slopes of the volcano. Each lava flow, that took place in different historical periods, determines a specific soil composition, that makes the wine that comes from that micro-territory unique.
An heroic viticulture context, made special by the altitude (about 800 m a.s.l.) and the presence of the volcano.
An experience not to be missed.

Discovering Mountain Viticulture - Cantina Donnafugata

Discovering Mountain Viticulture

On Etna, Donnafugata cultivates its vineyards between 700 and 750 meters
above sea level in a context of mountain viticulture. At these altitudes the
continental climate meets the Sicilian sun creating unique climatic conditions: rain
and snow in autumn and winter, mild temperatures in spring and summers with
wide temperature ranges give a marked aromatic freshness to the wines of this
area. Etna is also characterized by traditional forms of cultivation such as the Etna
“alberello” bush training system and by valuable native vines: the Carricante which
produces whites with a marked minerality and the Nerello Mascalese which gives
life to wines of extraordinary elegance.

Etna and surrounding woodland

Etna and surrounding woodland

Donnafugata wines express authentic and sustainable Sicilian winemaking. Taking care of the land means paying attention to the quality of production and promoting a relationship of mutual benefit between wine and plant. Therefore, the creation of horticultural and other gardens on the estates, the integration of agricultural and natural environments, and the protection of natural areas are acts that nurture agriculture and, above all, culture, enrich the landscape with biodiversity, and enhance its beauty.

The farming landscape that surrounds the Randazzo estate, with its terraces and millstones, woods and lava flows, forms a unique environmental mosaic. Passing through the vineyards, looking up at the mountain and strolling in the woods, you’ll also find a surprising quantity of native herbs; at any time of year, the sights, smells and flavours are a delicious assault on the senses.
