Estate History: SRC is a family-run winery founded in 2013 by Rori and Cinzia, along with their daughter Sandra. The name SRC derives from the first initials of their names, symbolizing their unity and dedication to the land. The estate spans about 17 hectares across five distinct districts on Mount Etna’s northern slopes: Crasà, Calderara, Rivaggi, Barbabecchi, and Pirao. These terraced vineyards benefit from fresh volcanic soils and high altitudes, creating exceptional conditions for viticulture. SRC employs biodynamic practices, utilizing wild herbs and local sheep for natural vineyard management. In the cellar, they favor natural fermentations and minimal intervention, eschewing sulfur to let the true character of the grapes shine through.

Serving Suggestions: The 2020 SRC 'Rivaggi' Etna Rosso is best enjoyed at around 60-65°F (15-18°C). It pairs beautifully with a variety of dishes, from grilled lamb and hearty stews to roasted vegetables and aged cheeses. For an authentic Sicilian experience, try it alongside traditional dishes such as pasta alla Norma or caponata. This wine also has the structure and complexity to develop further with age, making it a wonderful addition to any cellar.
