L’Eterno Pinot Noir Terre Siciliane IGT
Sicilia

Inspired by Giacomo Tachis, L’Eterno is one of the only Pinot Noirs made outside of the Etna area. It comes from 767 clones cultivated in a five acre vineyard. This was also the first project the winery made in collaboration with famous Italian fashion designers in order to preserve some important art and culturale sites. L’ Eterno is indeed a sculpture by artist Giacomo Serpotta.
