Planeta Etna Bianco DOC

2016

In a Nutshell

Etna's volcanic soils lend a complex minerality reminiscent of Burgundy's Chablis.

Tasting Notes

Pale yellow with green highlights. Aromas of white fruits, 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.

Production Notes

The grapes are picked into crates and at once refrigerated at 8⁰C, selected by hand and sent for light destalking and soft pressing. The decanted must is racked and ferments at 15⁰C in inox stainless steel and 15% of the must in tonneaux; the wine obtained remains on the lees with continuous movement until February
