Tasting Note

Pale yellow with green highlights. Aromas of white peach, yellow plum, herbal notes. The small percentage of wine fermented in wood softens the refreshing acidity typical of the Carricante and add complexity to the mineral character of this volcanic wine.

Winemaking

From Planeta's Feudo di Mezzo estate, at 700m above sea level on the northern slopes of Mount Etna. The main white vine variety here is Carricante. The soil is extraordinarily mineral-rich: derived from weathered lava, which can also be seen in the stones of local buildings and vineyard terraces. Grapes are picked into crates and are at once refrigerated at 8°C. After light crushing and destemming they are gently pressed. The decanted must is racked and inoculated with yeasts, and ferments at 15°C for 20 days. The wine remains on the lees until February with regular 'batonnage'. 10% of the must is fermented in oak barriques. The wine is then matured in stainless steel tanks and Allier oak 225 litre barriques

Food Recommendation

white wine for all seasons. Good as an aperitif, but excellent with starters based on fish and pasta.
