    Etna is one of the most dynamic wine growing regions with diverse microclimates. The DOC is a semi circle wrapped around the active volcano on the Island of Sicily. The Planeta vineyards are on the northern slope at a high elevation. Its aromatics are incredible with quince, citrus, and of course great volcanic minerality. The wine has a sense of saline with a floral and fruity quality. A partial fermentation in barrique gives texture to the otherwise light bodied wine. It is simple but nuanced. A great wine to dip your feet into the whites of Etna.

    From the slopes of Mt Etna comes this expressive white wine (Carricante)with inviting scents of honeyed citrus, almond and florals and subtle flavors of yellow fruit and prickly pear enveloped in a creamy palate with good acidity and a touch of saline on the finish. It's an intriguing white with a true sense of place that's a refreshing alternative to Chardonnay.
