Etna Bianco DOC

“The first time I produced this wine was in 2005. Basically I wanted to remove the white grapes that, in the old vines, it was customary to plant in small quantities mixed with the reds, to make my Etna Rosso with just Nerello. The white grapes were a blend of native varietals: Carricante, Catarratto, Inzolia, Grecanico and Minnella. And from the blending of these grapes, with a prevalence of Carricante, my Etna Bianco was born” Marco de Grazia And it still is. All from old vines. And somehow it works. A perfect, delicious wine. With the spontaneous grace of a dancer, it never loses its brightness and pace. Subtly drinkable, as it ages, the nobility of its terroir emerges decisively. And grace becomes thoughtful and profound, but always graceful, never redundant. With fish, chicken, rabbit. With prosciutto and melon, salami and figs. With fish first courses, risotto. It has great versatility and ease of drinking.
