Vinupetra is a word from the Sicilian dialect that means “wine produced in a soil full of stones,” in this case the special lava stones of Etna, which make themselves felt in this wine that is the result of the experience and wisdom of a master like Salvo Foti.
The vineyard is worked exclusively by hand, using only natural products and tools made by Sicilian artisans. The yeasts used are always indigenous. The soil on which the grapes for this wine grow is located on the northern slope of Etna, at an elevation of about 580 meters above sea level and characterized by a lava plate in the substrate that conditions its characteristics. Racking and bottling are carried out following the phases of the moon.
The color is a beautiful deep ruby red.
On the nose it is of great intensity, with the scent of ripe fruit and tobacco notes.
On the palate it is harmonious and elegant, with tannins that envelop the palate and remarkable persistence.
At the table its important structure makes it suitable for pairing with a flavorful meat sauce or grilled meat; it is also excellent with well-aged cheeses or cherry tomatoes in oil, for an all-Sicilian pairing.
INGREDIENTS AND BENEFITS
A glass of wine a day keeps the doctor away!
It is clear that wine is not harmful to our bodies, as a substance given to us by nature in the form of fruit from which man over the centuries has managed to obtain this heavenly beverage. We can guarantee that our winemakers work by following ancient methods, supported by the aid of contemporary technologies: this is why we feel confident in saying that Italian wine, the real one, is a panacea for body and mind.
The presence of polyphenols in wine (to a lesser extent in white wines and in large quantities in reds, especially when aged) provides constant protection against cellular oxidation, the main culprit of aging and cellular deterioration.
Perhaps even more obvious and important, however, are the psychological benefits that a good glass of Italian wine can give you: the lightheartedness it brings to an evening with friends, the romance it helps to create in a couple’s dinner, the passion it is able to unleash in anyone lucky enough to taste its essences.
We receive your order, prepare it and ship it in 24/36 hours.
We are aware that excellent products need excellent packaging and at the same time we cannot risk damaging in any way the precious Italian culinary jewels: for this reason our warehouse is equipped with temperature and lighting ideal for food preservation and the most delicate ones (cheeses, cold cuts and craft beers) are stored inside cold rooms. During shipping, on the other hand, each product is protected with the packaging most appropriate to its characteristics.
Cheeses and cured meats, which despite being aged require special care, travel accompanied by a special slow-release gel ice inside isothermal bags: in this way freshness is preserved until the goods arrive at your home.
For our craft beers, which are unpasteurized and therefore more sensitive to high temperatures than normal, we use special isothermal bubble wrap, which can ensure that the accumulated cold is maintained for the shipping time while protecting the bottles from shocks.
To secure the precious bottles of Italian wine, we have equipped ourselves with special inflatable bags, designed solely for the purpose of immobilizing and protecting this product inside the box.
For jars containing a thousand Italian goodnesses, we use special protective bubble wrap liners.
