Production area Eastern Sicily, north side of Etna, between Randazzo and Castiglione di Sicilia. Etna is a mountain viticulture with vineyards located between 700 and 750 m a.s.l.; the continental climate given by the altitude meets the Sicilian sunshine. In particular, this area north of the volcano is characterized by lower rainfall compared to the average of the other slopes of Etna.

Dialogue with creativity the coordinated image created by Dolce&Gabbana enhances the colors of Sicily both in the graphics of the label and box, and in the chromatic choice of the capsule and the grosgrain ribbon: the typical motifs and geometric shapes of the Sicilian cart, in which red, green, blue and yellow dominate the background, on which the smoking Etna is outlined. Imposing and solitary in its majestic grandeur, the volcano seems to float between earth and sky, between dream and reality, continuing to enchant with its genuine and authentically Sicilian beauty.
