Description

Terrazze dell'Etna Ciuri Blanc De Noir 2018

Terrazze dell'Etna Ciuri Blanc De Noir is a dry white wine that comes from experimentation with red berry Nerello Mascalese. A cool and vibrant white wine with great sapid flavour, lovely tropical fruit notes and a pleasant mineral closure.

100% Nerello Mascalese. The fruit for this wine comes from vines in the Municipality of Randazzo (CT), northwest side of Etna. The 10–15 year old vineyards sit at an altitude of 700–950 metres and have volcanic dark soils born from the disintegration of ancient lava flows coming from the volcano.

 

Harvesting of the fruit in the second week of September. Immediate separation of the must from the skins through soft pressing, 50% yield in must. The wine ages in steel tanks for at least 8 months, with battonage on the noble lees. Final bottle ageing for a minimum of 6 months.

Expressive in the fermentation, it shows notes of green apple, pears, banana and white peaches. So much linaiolo in the background reminiscent of rose petals. Medium-full body, round structure with good freshness and a brilliant finish. Drink now.
