This is Planeta’s first venture on Etna.  The first vintage produces Carricante, exuberant in its youthfulness. A fresh mineral style for a wine that suggests its character to be within the next few years. A mineral freshness due to the volcanic soil and the altitude; this is 870 metres above sea level, and a  viticulture which is extreme but fascinating.
Color: rather pale yellow with clear green hints. Nose: typical of high altitude wines; green apple, white flowers and wild honey. Mineral and almost minty tones are apparent. The wine is young and still has primary aromas which indicate a worthwhile development. Palate: acidic and fresh in the Etna style. Long and persistent with very evident fragrance.
