    Etna Bianco Superiore DOC 2019

    The area around the small town of Milo is the only vineyard on Etna where an Etna Bianco is allowed to be bottled as Superiore - and for a good reason: On the steep vineyard, which consists of dozens of small terraces, only Carricante can be planted. The vines are pulled on poles made of chestnut wood like a little tree. The eastward orientation and the sea, which is not far away, allow the grapes to ripen late, thus, very constant acidity values are achieved, and the result is a white wine of an aromatic finesse and freshness, which is unparalleled even on Etna.

    This historic site, called Milo, with its old vines is virtually predestined for the Etna Bianco Superiore, which is now in its 2nd vintage on the market. More floral and citrus-scented on the nose than the regular Carricante, the Superiore also has a bit more body, acidity, depth and finesse. The elegant acidity makes it vibrantly fresh and long and ensures exciting drinking flow and a nice aging potential. SUPERIORE.DE

    "A pretty, creamy-textured white with ash, mineral and lightly bitter lemon character. It’s full-bodied and layered with a lovely mouth feel and drinkability." James Suckling
