Carricante

Inhabiting the slopes of Mt Etna in Sicily for the last thousand years...

undefined, null

Inhabiting the slopes of Mt Etna in Sicily for the last thousand years, Carricante is the dominant grape in the Etna Bianco DOC blends, with Catarratto as the minor blending partner (if used at all). The best examples come from volcanic soils at higher altitudes where a marked diurnal temperature shift favors slow and steady ripening and the development of Carricante’s naturally high acidity.
