Etna Bianco DOC 2020 Sicilian White Wine - Tornatore

The cultivation of vines and the production of wine by the Tornatore family is a tradition that dates back to 1865 when the great-grandfather of the current owner undertakes agricultural activity. In 1910, Giuseppe, the current owner's grandfather, built a house and mill and increased the hectares of vineyards. A family with deep roots in the territory of origin, which in subsequent generations, has never neglected the attachment and respect of the same and traditions, and thanks to the combination of soil, climate and wisdom of the winemakers, produces wines of the highest quality but above all special and unique.

The vineyards, cultivated on the northern side of Etna, are located at an altitude of 650 m above sea level, in the municipality of Castiglione di Sicilia with exposure facing north.

Ancient pure Carricante vines, rooted on volcanic soils, give us this unique white, elegant and balanced, characterized by a pleasant flavor and freshness, completed by an extraordinary minerality.

In the glass it has a pale straw yellow color with intense greenish reflections. To the nose it expresses subtle and elegant aromas of green apple, white peach and aromatic herbs of the Mediterranean maquis. On the palate it reveals an attractive freshness and its elegant and characteristic aromatic outfit, all special mineral sensations, typical of the lava areas.
