brilliant golden yellow. Nose: complex and elegant, with scents of camomile, broom flowers, pear, quince, vanilla cream and honey. Palate: smooth, elegant and harmonious taste supported by a great minerality and excellent acidity, which makes it possible to expect a remarkable longevity.

Pairing

excellent with shellfish and flavorful seafood dishes, it is also a valid partner for roast game and bloomy rind cheeses.

Etna Bianco DOC “Contrada Monte Gorna” 2015 - Nicosia: Why we like it

This Etna Bianco DOC is produced from the vineyards on the high slopes of Monte Gorna. On this side of Mount Etna (South-East), the Carricante was selected many centuries ago and became the main grape variety for local white wines. The low yields in the vineyard, the hand picking into crates and the careful selection of the grapes makes it a very elegant white wine. The volcanic terroir gives it the typical mineral character. The ageing for 4 years, with a stay of 12 months in French oak barriques, makes the flavor profile of this wine very complex.
