Terrazze dell’Etna Ciuri Bianco

2015

In a Nutshell

An intriguing white made from predominantly red grapes

Tasting Notes

Light straw yellow in colour with great clarity and green reflections. Fresh and fragrant with notes of tropical fruit and a hint of rosemary. On the palate it is fresh, well balanced with an acidic backbone and attractive mineral finish.

Production Notes

This wine is made from a blend of 15% Carricante, a native Etna varietal known for its finesse and crisp character, and 85% Nerello Mascalese a red varietal vinified 'in bianco' (as a white wine). The grapes were hand harvested, then gently pressed. The must was left to settle for a couple of days before it was racked into stainless steel vats. Fermentation then took place at a cool temperature. The wine was then aged in steel and then in bottle before release.
