"Occhi di Ciumi" Etna Bianco DOC 2020 - Al-Cantàra

Occhi di ciumi is an Etna DOC proposed by Al-Cantàra. It comes from a successful blend of Carricante and Grecanico grapes, from vineyards in Etna, with plants that have their roots in deep volcanic soils. Soils capable of giving wines personality and unmistakable style. The harvest, strictly manual, takes place at different times and the grapes are picked in boxes with extreme delicacy. Vinification is accurate, with temperature control and malolactic fermentation carried out entirely. Then, before the arrival of winter, the final blend is made and left to refine for about six months on its own noble lees. The result is a wine characterized by a beautiful golden straw yellow colour. The nose is striking for its aromatic complexity, with intense floral and tropical fruit scents. In the mouth, then, it reveals itself to be a fresh wine, ample and endowed with good flavour.

Al-Cantàra was born from the happy intuition that a good wine is "poetry" and to make it you need "art" - as you can read on the winery's website. It is no coincidence that all the wines produced have names of poems by Sicilian authors and the labels reflect the works of two young painters from Catania. We're in the heart of Sicily. In a corner of paradise that is located exactly in contrada Feudo S. Anastasia in the municipality of Randazzo, 620 metres above sea level. The summit of Mount Etna, not far away, watches over the vineyards and the winery from above. The name Al-Cantàra comes from the river that flows at the foot of the volcano. Although young, the company was officially opened in 2005, has already established itself nationally and internationally thanks to the high quality of its wines, awarded by food and wine critics. Today the company can count on a total of 20 hectares of land, of which about 15 hectares are planted with vines. And among these about 4 are historical, over 60 years old, with a thousand prephylloxera strains. Total production, mostly under the hat of DOC Etna, is about 100 thousand bottles per year. Once again tradition and innovation go hand in hand under the blue sky of Sicily.
