Winemaker Notes: White wine from Carricante and Catarratto grapes with a straw-yellow hue and magnificent flavour. Powerful aromas; it is an immersion in the Mediterranean and pure volcanic emotion. Honey, yellow flowers and citrus fruits proudly proclaim its territorial identity. That sense of sea that is present everywhere on Etna even when you do not see it, with a tangy, salty mineral vein that tastes of surf, cliff-face, oysters and clams, and the sun beating down directly over the Byzantine ruins of its vineyards.

Food Pairing: Appetizers, first and second courses with white meat, raw fish
