Medium straw yellow colour with a fragrant bouquet rich of citrus fruits and mineral notes, with hints of fresh Mediterranean herbs. The wine is vibrant, fresh and sapid on the palate. Quite tropical on the palate with ripe melon, starfruit and dragon fruit and a pleasant bitter almond note on the finish.

70% Carricante, 30% Cattarato. These 5 to 30 year-old, bush-trained vines are planted at 2,230 - 2,460 ft. above sea level, on the north-facing side of Mount Etna near Passopisciaro, on volcanic sand and rock. Grapes are painstakingly hand-picked and after a soft pressing and very little skin contact, fermentation occurred in stainless steel tanks. The resulting wine aged in tank for six months.
