Description

Country: Italy

Region: Sicily

Grapes: Grape Carricante 90 ; Grape Riesling 10

Tasting Note:

Zesty, characterful white from the volcanic slopes of Etna in

Sicily: a blast of white flowers precedes a mouthful of lemon

zest and green apples, with distinctive minerality thanks to

that soil of ancient lava.

Winemaking:

The grapes are soft pressed intact and not destemmed. The

must is fermented at 15 °C for 20 days. The wine remains

on the lees until February with continuous stirring. Later it is

bottled.

Vineyard :

The vineyards of Sciara Nuova are in the area of the Etna

vulcano. Vines are 850 metres above sea level and trained

with the cordon spur vertical trellis system. Density of

planting is 5000 plants per hectares.

Food matching:

An ideal match for seafood dish; pairs extremely well with

oily fish. Planeta strongly suggested with Tagliolini with

zucchini, capers and mint or wild mixed herb soup.
