Wine Profile
Wine Profile / Tasting Notes
This Etna Bianco takes its name from the Marchese Contrada (district), in Solicchiata di Castiglione di Sicilia. On the nose the wine is delicate with fruity, citrus and mineral aromas. Lovely acidity on the palate, with flavors of lime, herbs and a great minerality.
Vineyard Notes
The soil is volcanic in origin, of varying depths. It has a sub-acid reaction and is rich in organic substances. Soil texture is loamy-sandy, with an abundance of skeleton grains in certain areas of the vineyard. Soils are generally fertile, well-drained and with excellent root exploration. Cover crops of leguminous and/or grass species have been grown since 2007.
Production Notes
Bunches are picked by hand and collected in crates, and macerated for 8/10 hours at approximately 7/8°C; the clean grape must is then racked. Fermentation is carried out using the wine cellar’s own indigenous yeasts, at around 15°C, for approximately 20/30 days. The resulting wine is only aged in steel, for at least 10 months; it is left on the fine lees and repeatedly pumped over. Before bottling, the total sulphur dioxide content of the wine is checked, and if necessary, topped up (adding only a few grams to ensure the product is stable, and that it can withstand stresses caused by transportation, high temperatures etc.). The temperature is then lowered to stabilize the wine before bottling.
Winemaker Notes
Carricante is an ancient white grape variety that has been cultivated on the slopes of the volcano forever, particularly at higher altitudes. Its name is derived from the Sicilian expression “u carricanti”, emphasising the abundant yield of its plants, which can fill the ‘carri’ or wagons with grapes. It produces great whites with fine structure and longevity.
Food & Wine Pairing
Appetizers, first and second course with white meat and raw fish.
