ETNA’S PRELAGE WITH FIRRIATO’S STYLE
GAUDENSIUS BLANC DE NOIR
Etna DOC Spumante Brut Classic Method
A perfect union created from vines that spread their roots in the volcanic terrain and mountainside climate that only Etna can offer. The famous, centuries-old Nerello Mascalese grapes are processed into a sparkling white wine, appealing in the glass and a true example of absolute style. The sparkling process is completed using the “blanc de noirs” method to bring out the sensory characteristics of the Nerello Mascalese grapes. After a light pressing of the grapes still attached to the stalks, vinification occurs inside the winery contained within the typical Etna baglio (old farmhouse) dating back to the 17th century. Gaudensius is a sparkling wine with a refined bead of continuous and persistent tiny bubbles, distinguished by colours with hints of luminous gold, and a complex flavour that is also of rare elegance.

The production technique is inspired by the one used for the Pinot Noir grapes of Champagne. For this wine, we use a particular selection of Nerello Mascalese grapes having a large, tightly packed bunch and which are harvested before their complete maturation to get high juice yield. Our estate discovered the potential of the Nerello Mascalese grapes for the production of sparkling wine at the end of the 1980s and we were the first to produce this type of wine in the territory of Mt Etna
