Cavanera Ripa di Scorciavacca Etna Bianco DOC - Firriato

The Cavanera Etnea Estate is one of the latest acquisitions of the Firriato company in Trapani. A beautiful plot of land located on the northern slope of the volcano, where it enjoys a very special microclimate, perfect for growing vines. Soil rich in minerals and a beneficial temperature range between day and night contribute to the incredibly intriguing wines produced here. An example is this Cavanera Ripa di Scorciavacca, Etna DOC, characterized by an intense and refined bouquet of scents. Fruit of the union of Carricante and Catarratto, this wine is produced from a single vineyard, whose soil is particularly fertile due to the presence of a high concentration of nutrients that, in combination with agronomic practices, give the wine a strong and balanced character between acidity and softness and, above all, a potential for extraordinary longevity.

Among the most representative wineries of Sicily there is undoubtedly Firriato. Modern in concept, style and marketing, Firriato is the brainchild of a visionary entrepreneur from Trapani, Salvatore Di Gaetano, who has always been supported by his charming wife Vinzia, who for years has also represented the public image of the winery in the world. We are in the 80s and Sicilian wine is about to live its golden age, its renaissance, as someone wrote in the past. Today, after almost 40 years, the Firriato winery is a solid reality, based in Paceco, between Trapani and Erice, and with vineyards scattered in different areas of Sicily. The hectares of vines owned are in fact about 320, divided into seven different estates, including one on the slopes of Etna and one on the island of Favignana. If in the countryside the most rigorous respect for nature reigns, in the cellar technology helps oenologists to make the most of each variety processed, whether native or international. The result is wines that are awarded by critics around the world and sought after by wine lovers year after year.

    The 2017 Etna Bianco Cavanera Ripa di Scorciavacca is mildly floral with white rose and honeysuckle that cede to citrus, white grapefruit and honey. Following that pretty floral bouquet, the mouthfeel is lean and snappy, making this a perfect seafood white.

  • James Sucking 94

    A very subtly played style of Etna Bianco, this opens with candied citrus, juniper berries, flint and green apples. Very precise and cutting on the palate, which is medium in body and replete with acidity. Minerally and long on the finish. Drink now.
