Who is Theresa Eccher

A woman born in Austrian Trentino, minute but with a strong character: Daniela Conta Eccher's grandmother. Daniela collected the family wine tradition when, with her husband Andrea Panozzo, created the winery called Theresa Eccher. They chose the Volcano Etna, in the most suitable area for viticulture: Solicchiata, at 800 meters above sea level. A place unique in the world, where temperature excursions reach 30 degrees, the winds that blow from the sea bring salty humidity and perfumes, the soil gives strong minerality.

The Cellar

The magic place is on the northern slope of the Volcano Etna. A world suspended between the lava fire and the clear water of the Mediterranean sea. Among lava flows and olive trees, expanses of Mediterranean scrub and figs, lie vineyards that produce extraordinary wines, appreciated and sought after all over the world. Here Theresa Eccher grows, with organic systems, Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio, Carrican­te, Catarratto: all native grapes, typical of Etna. For extremely elegant, fresh, vertical wines, rich in minerality. A pleasure for sight, smell and taste.

The wine selected for Crowdwine: Ariel 2019 & Ariel 2020

Etna doc Rosé. Nerello Mascalese in purity. It fascinates everyone from the first glance: transparent and crystalline, liquid, pink as you expect it to be a rose wine. Wi­thout concessions to fashions. It comes from a vineyard in the extreme north of Etna, in Contrada Montelaguardia, close to the terrible lava flow of 1981 that hit the territo­ries of Randazzo. Harvested early in the morning twenty days before full maturity, it is processed in cryomaceration, with the aid of dry ice. It remains for five to six months in steel and then goes to the bottle, where it remains for a month. The nose has hints of raspberry and strawberry with a pleasant citrus retro thought. In the mouth it is dry, decisive, sapid and persistent. It has the strength of red and the kindness of white. It is perfect with raw and cooked shellfish. But cold is also a fantastic appetizer.


A 2019 to taste and a 2020 to look forward to!
