Etna Bianco DOC Sentieri Siciliani 2021


£16.95 per bottle

ABV 13%


Volcanic soils and a maritime influence combine to impart a distinct elegance and mineral character upon the island`s wines. Notable for its range of local varieties with Nero d`Avola and Nerello Mascalese making reliable, fleshy red wines, whilst Catarratto, Grillo and Inzolia yield surprisingly well balanced and flavourful white wines. You will also find the more recognised grapes of Syrah and Chardonnay performing really well in this warm Mediterranean climate. However, it is the uniquely rich and mineral influenced dessert wines that are perhaps Sicily`s greatest contribution to the wine world, from Marsala to Moscato di Pantelleria and Malvasia.

Sentieri Siciliani traditionally sold typical Sicilian agricultural products. They moved into Sicilian viticulture and in collaboration with local farmers, they meticulously select the best grapes and plots for creating high quality Etna wines.

Tasting Notes
This Etna Bianco is made with the native grapes Carricante and Catarratto which grow on the volcanic slopes of Mount Etna. The lava soils add a distinctive mineral note which gives a real sense of place to the wine. A bright gold in colour with notes of apple, white peach, pear and star anise. Very fresh on the finish from a crisp, citrus acidity and a smoky mineral note.

Excellent partner to sundried tomatoes mozzarella, stuffed peppers or stuffed vine leaves.
