Tenuta delle Terre Nere - Etna Bianco - Montalto - 750 ml 13%
Montalto Etna Bianco DOC
“Sermely installed on the northern slopes of Etna, for many years I also explored most of the other slopes – buying grapes, vinifying grapes for colleagues, measuring altitudes, studying geological peculiarities, verifying historical boundaries. I have carefully probed not only my northern territories, but also the eastern and southern territories, trying to estimate their qualities and limitations. At very high altitudes on the southern side I am convinced that I have found an area where the Carricante thrives particularly well.
Having vinified grapes from that area for six years on an experimental level, and certain of their exceptional grace, I was very lucky to see myself offering a tiny vineyard from which my favorite white grapes came. The area is known as Montalto, although it is not classified as a district. And here, 950 meters away, in the most perfect of exhibitions and constantly ventilated, lies my small and very old vineyard. And here you find that freshness of climate that perfectly compensates for the full south exposure. The first vintage produced is 2019 – a pearl.” Marco de Grazia
Whites characterized by a voluptuous softness and spicy and “warm” aromas, underlined by a full alcoholic vigor and a balanced freshness resulting from the combination of full exposure at noon and a very high altitude.
