Eduardo Torres Acosta 'Versante Nord' Terre Siciliane, Italy 2021

Originally from the Canary Islands, Eduardo first began making wine while working with his father on a small plot of land in Tenerife. In 2012, he picked up and moved to Sicily to work with Arianna Occhipinti and soon afterwards his life in Sicily took shape. He was able to rent some vineyards from locals and eventually he purchased his own plots. Up until the 2017 vintage, the grapes were harvested and then trucked to Arianna Occhipinti’s estate in Vittoria. Since the winemaking facility was not on Etna, the wines were not allowed DOC status and simply carry the IGT Terre Siciliane designation. In 2018, Eduardo was able to convert a small Etna garage into a winery but has decided to keep the wines IGT. The wine is aged for 16 months in concrete tanks and old barriques with minimal racking and bottled without fining or filtration.
