Vinification

The grapes are harvested early into crates so as to preserve acidity; then they are destalked and undergo soft pressing, the must decanted is racked and inoculated with yeasts, it ferments at 15⁰C in stainless steel vats, the wine thus obtained remains on the fine lees with continual stirring until January, at the end of March it is prepared for the ‘tirage’ and is bottled; it remains on the lees for 20 months, at 12⁰C, and is then disgorged.

Tasting Notes
  • Eyes Eyes
  • Nose Nose
  • Mouth Mouth
A Metodo Classico on Etna? Yes indeed! An extraordinary surprise given to us by this Sicilian mountain thanks to the freshness of the Carricante grapes harvested slightly before time and thanks to the fine sand which together succeed in generating not only floral aromas, which are never overpowering, but also that of citrus fruit with great mineral power that supports a refined and lasting ‘perlage’.
In the mouth the wine flows smoothly and softly with a delicate flavour of citrus and passion fruit. A surprising and enchanting taste, rich and at the finish punctuated with aromas of the Mediterranean macchia.

Pairings
Perfect to begin, or finish, any evening, its acid freshness allows it to venture where many vines cannot dare as with an omelette or dishes of particular oiliness.

Chickpea fritters

INGREDIENTS Serves 4

500 g / 1 lb. 2 oz. chickpea flour

1 1/2 L / 1 1/2 qt. water

20 g / 3/4 oz. chopped parsley

peanut oil

salt to taste

black pepper to taste

DIFFICULTY 2/5 | PREPARATION TIME 40 minutes

Pour the water and the chickpea flour into a heavy pan whisking constantly to avoid lumps. Add salt and black pepper to taste,

and bring to a boil stirring constantly with a spatula. The mixture is ready when it thickens and pulls away from the sides of the pan. Add the chopped parsley, then spread the mixture out in a wellgreased rectangular or round container to cool. Our family likes to spread it on the back of an old soup bowl that’s been slightly moistened with water and greased.

When the mixture cools down, cut it into squares or triangles. Heat the peanut oil in a deep pan and deep-fry the panelle. Fennel

seeds can be used instead of the chopped parsley.
