Tasting Notes

100% Carricante from century-old pre-phylloxera vines, 850m above sea level on the Eastern slopes of Mt Etna. Aromas of fresh pear, lemon rind, and peach purée. Long, mineral finish with notes of fresh ginger and plenty of zip.

ProducerPietradolce

One of the rising stars in our portfolio, since its founding in 2005 Pietradolce has come to own one of the largest collections of pre-phylloxera vines on the active volcano Mt Etna – which are up to 120 years old. This ancient mountain commands the winery’s devotion and respect, the energy and nuance of the volcanic soils producing truly phenomenal wines. Owner Michele Faro and winemaker Giuseppe Parlavecchio focus exclusively on local varieties Nerello Mascalese and Carricante, producing a range of pure, terroir-driven wines roughly structured as Village, Premier Cru, and Grand Cru. While the do offer an elegance and depth reminiscent of great Burgundy, they offer incredible value compared to the Cote d’Or.
