From the blend of two highly refined vines that boast the denomination of Etna Bianco: Carricante and Catarratto. The origin is that of the territory of Castiglione di Sicilia in the province of Catania, in the Cavanera Etnea estate. The manual harvesting of the grapes takes place during the second ten days of October. The vinification involves cryo maceration, then soft pressing and fermentation at a controlled temperature. The refinement of the wine develops for at least 6 months on the noble lees or "sur lie" with daily stirring.
