Etna Bianco DOC
From Feudo di Mezzo cellar, which is located in the heart of Etna viticulture, the amazing Etna Bianco Planeta is born. It is an Etna DOC wine, made from 100% Carricate grapes, which are partially fermented in barriques, looking for an actual expression of this noble vine cultivated in the beautiful and unique terroir around Mount Etna. Grapes are harvested by hand in September and are immediately refrigerated at 8 °C. After their manual selection, grapes are softly crushed. Lamost all the decanted must ferments at 15 °C in stainless steel, while just 15% in tonneaux. The obtained wine remains until late February on fine lees with frequent pumping over before bottling.
The Carricante grapes from Etna always give us great satisfaction as the combination of black sand and altitude provide distinct aromas and three dimensional flavours. In this vintage we find notes of white acacia flowers, fresh almonds and mountain peaches. On the palate it is juicy and full of hints of yellow plums and prickly pear. We recommend serving it at a temperature of 10-12 °C.
