Tenuta di Fessina

Sicily – Mt Etna
These are without question the finest wines I have tasted from Tenuta di Fessina, a new estate that is moving in the right direction. Federico Curtaz, who made his name managing Angelo Gaja’s vineyards is the winemaker. Tenuta di Fessina is one of the most exciting emerging properties in the Etna landscape. ANTONIO GALLONI

Fessina is a small estate at Catania and is one of the more exciting producers to emerge in recent years. The winemaking is under the control of Federico Curtaz who moved to the south from a plum winemaking job at Angelo Gaja in Barbaresco after he fell in love with the landscape and old vineyards. He brings a unique blend of winemaking skill with an understanding a variety that presents aromatically and structually very similarly to nebbiolo. PWS
