NERD NOTES

Grapes are lightly crushed without destemming. Skin maceration for a day and a half, then grapes are pressed in a vertical basket press. Fermented and aged in a 500-L chestnut barrel for 9 months (Chestnut from the estate made by Cesare and Federica). Aged 2 months in bottle before release. No added sulfur

"Caravan Petrol” is a tongue-in-cheek name for the phenomenon that Federica and Cesare have observed of newcomers buying land for vineyards on Etna, completely changing the landscape with bulldozers and other machinery in an effort to profit off of Etna's popularity. It is also a nod to a Neapolitan song from the 1950s with the title “Caravan Petrol”.
