Firsat established in 1865 and still run by the same family Tornatore are one of the oldest producers in the region. They have 46ha of vineyards on the north side of active volcano Mount Etna, 1,000m above sea level. The focus at Tornatore is on native grape varieties: Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio, Carricante and Catarratto. While the varietals used are traditional, their winemaking style is more modern in approach, with lower alcohol and more emphasis on fruit. Their wines have quickly become very popular and offer incredible complexity and intrigue at a very affordable price.
