The Russian winery , nestled among its own vineyards, is located right at the foot of the largest active volcano in Europe , on the north-eastern slope of Etna. The vineyards extend between 650 and 1000 m above sea level, in the districts of Crasà, Piano Daini and Rampante in a dry and well-ventilated area, with significant temperature ranges between day and night during the ripening of the grapes. The different volcanic substrate characterizes the vineyards depending on the district where they are located. The Crasà vineyards are unique because the volcanic soil has mixed with a clayey sediment from the pre-quaternary period: this soil has a different structure and a slightly higher pH compared to volcanic soils of more recent lava origin that have a lower pH and a stony structure called in Sicilian " Ripiddu ". In the Etna belt there are substantial microclimatic differences between one area and the other of the volcano, due to the particular position of the Etna and its morphology. The territory, the microclimate, the volcanic earth rich in minerals, together with the peculiarity of the native vines, favor the production of unique wines. Etna wine, in fact, was the first Sicilian table wine to obtain the recognition of the Controlled Denomination of Origin (DOC), as a result of a long winemaking tradition, among the oldest in the world.
