The Carricante grapes from Etna always give us great satisfaction as the combination of black sand and altitude provide distinct aromas and three dimensional flavours. In this vintage we find notes of white acacia flowers, fresh almonds and mountain peaches, on the palate it is juicy and full of hints of yellow plums and prickly pear. Perfect with raw fish and fresh fruit, with fish appetisers, and soft cheese. Also a refined aperitif.

Wine EnthusiastThis elegant white grown on the slopes of Mount Etna opens with aromas of pressed wildflower, lemon, wet stone and wild herb. The aromas follow over to the bright, linear palate along with Indian fig and a saline note.

Wine SpectatorMouthwatering acidity frames this well-knit, light- to medium-bodied white, which offers a creamy plumpness to the flavors of baked quince, grated ginger, stone and nectarine. Drink now through 2023.
