Etna Bianco "De Aetna" DOC 2019 - Terra Costantino

Certified organic, this Etna Bianco DOC from Cantina TerraCostantino is the result of processing the best grapes harvested in the company's vineyards in Contrada Blandano and Contrada Cannarozzo in Viagrande, on the south-eastern slope of Etna. We are at an altitude of about 450-550 metres, with a beautiful view of the Mediterranean Sea and the coasts of Calabria. The positioning of the vineyards is such as to guarantee a beneficial temperature range between day and night, which favours the prolongation of the ripening period and the appearance of a rich aromatic heritage. The basic grapes are Carricante in clear majority, with Catarratto and a small percentage of Minella. These grapes are perfectly acclimatised to this area and reach maturity in the last ten days of September. The vineyard has an average age of about 20 years and the plants have roots that go deep into the heart of the earth, drawing the nourishment they need. Vinification is super easy, in stainless steel, after which it is refined for a few months in the bottle before being put on the market. Straw yellow in colour, the nose reveals a broad, fresh and fragrant bouquet. On the palate, however, it is especially striking for its great balance and fresh minerality. Good persistence, it is the right wine to accompany a dinner with friends, from aperitif to the end of the meal, planning the next holidays. In Sicily, of course.

We are in one of the most interesting corners of enological Sicily. At the foot of Mount Etna, where the vineyards grow on unique soils and develop thanks to a climate that is much cooler than that experienced throughout the rest of the island. It was against this backdrop that TerraCostantino became Etna's first organic winery, at a time when the world's attention had not yet been focused on the volcano's extraordinary oenological microcosm. Behind this brand is a long history of agricultural culture and love for the land. We are in contrada Blandano in Viagrande, where 10 hectares at high altitude overlooking the Mediterranean give life to simply extraordinary wines. Trees and rows of indigenous grapes grow on lava flows in the heart of Etna DOC. The winery, the first in southern Italy to be built according to modern bio-architecture techniques, was designed to be completely concealed in the natural degradation of the vines. Both the cellar and the barrel cellar do not require artificial cooling systems. The soil they are in contact with maintains a constant temperature of 15° and ensures natural ventilation.

    This shows how powerful the dry whites from the carricante grape can get, while still retaining freshness and mineral bite. Very focused with tons of candied citrus, angelica and pine nuts at the long, driving finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
