"Lenza di Munti 720 slm" Etna Bianco DOC 2021 - Nicosia

The "720" on the label refers to the height above sea level of the vineyards where this Sicilian white wine comes from. We are almost in the high mountains, although the soil, dark and rich in minerals, immediately reveals its volcanic origin. Etna Bianco Lenza di Munti, Carricante and Catarratto, is a complex and captivating wine, thanks above all to its strong mineral content which derives from its volcanic origin. Aged in stainless steel tanks on its fine lees, it does not encounter wood in order not to alter the aromatic framework of the grapes from which it was made. In the glass it has a beautiful bright straw yellow colour, with an intense bouquet that easily recalls the delicate notes of wild flowers, but also the citrus notes of grapefruit and fruity ones of green apple. In the mouth, however, it surprises with its freshness and minerality. An intriguing mix between an elegant mountain wine and a son of the volcano. At table it is hard to cause it difficulty. It easily holds both fish and meat dishes. He has enough structure and character to get everyone on the same page. The right bottle to expect throughout the meal.

Who knows if in 1898, when Francesco Nicosia, great-grandfather of the current owner, decided to open his first wine shop in Trecastagni, he already knew that Etna would one day become the very symbol of quality wine in Sicily. He probably hoped so. After all, even then the Etnean wine was known and appreciated throughout Europe for its mineral strength and its volcanic personality. From those fortunate beginnings, to the current management the path has been long but consistent. Today the company is entrusted to the hands of Carmelo Nicosia who has staked everything on the redevelopment of the company, investing in the expansion and renovation of vineyards, as well as in the construction of a modern processing cellar. Today Cantine Nicosia is a dynamic, modern and efficient company, able to look to the future in full respect of tradition, thanks to a young but well-trained staff. Native grape varieties and international varieties well adapted to the climate of Sicily, coexist to give life to wines of great personality, produced in full respect of the environment. The headquarters of the winery have remained in Trecastagni, while most of the company's vineyards are located not far away, at the foot of Monte Gorna, one of Etna's many extinct craters. The company also owns vast tracts of land in Vittoria, in the Ragusano area, where Cerasuolo DOCG is produced, and directly manages large expanses of vineyards in the rest of Sicily.
