A medium bodied and perfumed red wine from Mt Etna. Notes of raspberry, rose petal, anise and spice. Minerally and silky on the palate with pure fruit flavours. Delicious example of a Mt Etna red.

Sofia is a reasonably new estate located on the north side of Mt Etna. Wine has been produced here since the 1980's, when Gioacchino Sofia received his first half hectare of vines from his father, slowly expanding that over time.

However until recently this was mostly made in small amounts and sold locally, with Azienda Agricole Sofia officially launched in 2017 by Gioachhino's children Carmelo and Valentina. La Vigne di Gioacchino is added to the labels in respect of their father, who still helps out in the vineyard.
