2020 Contrada Etna Bianco, Cantine Nicosia, Sicilia, Italy Organic

£19.00 inc. VAT

Deliciously minerally white from vineyards at the base of the most famous volcanic regions in the world.

The Carricante and Catarratto grapes are grown on poor volcanic soil at Nicosia’s organically-farmed Contrada Monte Gorna vineyard, at an altitude of around 700m. The fruit is hand harvested well into October. The carefully selected grapes are cold macerated for 24 hours and, after destemming, are pressed softly. The juice is left to ferment at a controlled temperature of 15-18°C for approximately 20-25 days. The wine is bottled in February following a short maturation in tonneaux.

Pronounced and complex nose with savoury, nutty aromas and hints of fennel and white spice. Ripe and textured with lightly honeyed stone fruit, balanced by minerality and sappy acidity.

If you like sushi then treat yourself to a glass or two of this with it and you’ll be happy as the thespian Olivier
