    On a steep slope (imagine reaching up to pick your grapes!) from the South East corner of an active volcano grows Carricante and Cataratto. These two grapes come together and create a spicy, intriguing and earth focused wine. It has more skin contact than it's brother wine, the Outis, and has an almost vermouth quality to it. It is refreshing and flavorful with a strong mineral backbone. The fruit is fresh and lively while a biting back palate sets it in place.

    We're big fans of Ciro Biondi both personally and professionally and his "Pianta" is a strong testament to the outstanding results he's getting from his vineyards. This old vines white is a blend of mostly Carricante with Cataratto and Minella that spends a total of nine months aging in older French barrels. It's deep, complex and refined and will appeal especially to those who love white Burgundy. Although stunning on its own, it shines at the table with seafood and white meat dishes.
