"Villa dei Baroni" Etna Bianco DOC 2021 - Carranco

Villa dei Baroni Etna Bianco DOC is made from 100% Carricante grapes. "u carricanti", its traditional name in Sicilian dialect, recalls its great generosity. Left free to produce, in fact, the Carricante is able to bring to maturity an enormous quantity of grapes, with which (in the past) whole wagons were filled. Today, of course, things are quite different. The great vigour of the plant is largely regulated thanks to constant interventions in the vineyard and fewer grapes arrive ready for harvesting, but they are of a decidedly higher quality. This, after all, is the goal that every manufacturer should pursue. The result is a wine of great structure and longevity, thanks to the magical combination of altitude and cool temperatures, typical for Etna, which give this wine a complex flavour, savoury, intense and elegant. With fruity notes of green apple and citrus. Don't treat it as a simple white wine and don't try to pair it with a simple baked fish. This wine, despite its colour, has structure and character, and requires a strong flavour pairing. Much better to think about a tasty soup or a second course of fish or white meat, as long as it is tasty.

Great things happen when men and mountains meet. This phrase by William Blake, published on the website of the Carranco winery, sums up well what is not a simple winery. It is he dream of two great men of wine that met in a moment of their lives and gave life to something unique and unrepeatable. Carranco, in fact, was born in 2018, from the collaboration between Borgogno and Tornatore. The oldest winery in Barolo and one of the very few native producers. A marriage of history, authenticity and experience. We are on the north side of Etna, considered the most suitable territory for the growth and production of the great wines of the volcano. The vineyards are located about 500 metres above sea level, within the 'Contrada that gives its name to the company. Eight hectares of vineyards, cultivated with the native vines of Etna, and therefore mainly with Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio and Carricante. The vineyards are old, on average 50/60 years old, still cultivated with traditional systems and conducted with modern methods of sustainable agriculture. Gobelet vines of extraordinary beauty, planted on small terraces on the slopes. The result is fruit of extraordinary concentration from which wines with unmistakable personality and character are obtained. After all, from a great land and from two great characters we could not expect anything different.

Awarded
  • James Sucking 93

    Pretty lemon curd and lemon zest with hints of cooked apples throughout this wine. Full body. Creamy texture and a flavorful finish. Serious, new white from a joint venture between Etna’s Tornatore and Piedmont’s Giacomo Borgogno. Drink or hold.

  • Wine Enthusiast 92

    Spanish broom, white stone fruit, lychee and Mediterranean scrub aromas lead the nose on this vibrant white. Elegant and linear, the focused palate delivers juicy yellow pear, white peach and Meyer lemon alongside bright acidity. It closes on a tangy saline note. KERIN O’KEEFE
