Terre Sicilliane , Italy
Mid straw, this wine has attractive aromas of lime, lemons and white peach. The dry palate has ripe citrus flavours, a lively acidity and good palate length. The wine displays an underlying minerality and sapidity characteristic of grapes grown on volcanic soils.
This wine is made from organically grown, autochthonous white grapes; predominantly Grecanico (70%), sourced from several small vineyards, high on the north face of Mt Etna. The grapes were hand harvested from these old vineyards during the third week of September. The average age of the vines is 80 years old. The altitudes of the vineyards are 800-1100 metres above sea level. Soils are basalt; dark grey, sandy and rocky with high mineral content.
