A harmonious blend of Chardonnay & Carricante from the slope of Mt Etna.
Chardonnay has adapted well to the Sicilian pedo-climate in areas with significant temperature variability and without excessive heat, such as the mid to high hills and the slopes of Etna. In these conditions it matures gradually, improving its complexity and enriching the variety of its aromas.
Carricante, a rare vine which is native to Etna, is widespread at the highest altitudes of the volcano, where it achieves otherwise unattainable freshness. As a late variety, if grown as a small tree and properly vinified, it produces white wines of great stature, with a fresh and complex nose of apple, yellow fruits, orange blossom and anise, as well as a typical acidity that gives it structure and longevity. Harmonic, refreshingly acidic, with a finish of anise and almond. Wonderful stuff.
