Press ReviewPress

Flinty, peachy nose, then a fresh and energetic palate with very ripe tropical fruits and a long, refreshing zesty-mineral finish.

Silver MedalDecanter World Wine Awards 2017

It was a savoury component, as well as some food-friendly richness on the palate that earned this the Gold podium. Team leader Sarah Jane Evans MW found it ‘floral, vibrant and aromatic, with an oily mid-palate and a touch of bitterness on the finish’, while Vinoteca’s Charlie Young praised ‘savoury, rich aromas, and a nice, punchy freshness that carries the weight of the wine’. Richard Brooks of Caroline Catering thought that ‘as an accompaniment to fish or shellfish, this could be a real cracker’.

Gold MedalSommelier Wine Awards 2017

Taking its name from the Etna eruption in 1614 that lasted 10 years, this fresh and elegant Carricante has an attractive lime and floral nose and a palate loaded with beautiful aromas, an elegant structure and limey finish. The 10% blend of Riesling brings a soft floral and honey touch as well.
