Aglaea – the youngest of the Three Graces or Charites as they were also known the three sisters, and daughters of the God Zeus. Aglaea was the goddess of beauty, splendor, glory, magnificence and adornment. At times she acted as messenger for Aphrodite, the goddess of love.

Aglaea is significant with winemaker,  Anne-Louise Mikkelsen's sentiments for Etna; with what her wines try to express, and how they do so. In that sense, the wines of Tenuta di Aglaea act as her messengers from Etna.

An absolute unique terroir makes the vineyards – a direct consequence of Etna and its numerous eruptions since its volcanic activity began more than half a million years ago. The lava flows hardened layers upon layers, and ashes filled on top. The result today is a very porous soil that is abundant in minerals and extremely fertile. The vineyards are cultivated in terraces held up and apart by ancient stone walls 3-4 feet high.
