Our Linea Femina, from the Latin Femìna - donna, fully represents the meaning of its name. These are indeed attractive, sinuous and delicate wines that are able to astonish from the first sip. The Etna Rosso Femina, ruby red in color, full bodied and velvety, with strong aromas of red fruit of the undergrowth, goes perfectly with any type of meat, cold cuts and cheeses; it is the emblem of Mount Etna.
