The fourteen hectares of Contrada Santo Spirito di Passopisciaro are located at 700 metres above sea level and are planted with local grapes that are autochthonous to Etna. The red wine is Nerello Mascalese and the white wine is Carricante and Minnella. There are some fundamental factors that contribute to growing great grapes, such as volcanic soil, which can sometimes be stony and gravelly, sandy or ashy. Also, good ventilation is very important as well as the age of the vines, many of which are pre-phylloxera.
