This wine is light straw yellow in colour with great clarity and youthful reflections. The nose is fresh and fragrant with notes of tropical fruit and a hint of rosemary. On the palate, it is well-balanced with vibrant acidity and a long, mineral finish.
Ciuri Etna Bianco
Professore Antonio Bevilacqua is an engineer by profession, and has a very successful business based in Palermo and Milan that ensures he travels the world. He is very proud of his Sicilian origins, so in 2007 he decided to start buying land in Etna with a view to producing the best wines possible. Today he has 35 hectares of vineyard plus 20 that he rents and manages, on the slopes of Etna. Warm days and cool nights, combined with volcanic low vigour soil, ensures wines of great intensity from low yielding vines
The vineyards are located in the municipality of Randazzo at 550-750 metres above sea level, on the northern slopes of Etna. The soil is volcanic and the climate is cool, with a notable diurnal temperature range and good ventilation. The vines are planted on terraces, or ‘terrazze’, at a density of 6,000 vines per hectare. Some of the vines are free-standing while others are trained using vertical shoot positioning
The grapes were hand harvested. After gentle pressing, the must was left to settle for a couple of days before it was racked into stainless steel tanks. Fermentation took place at a controlled temperature of 12°C. The wine was aged in stainless steel tanks for six months and then in bottle for a further six months before release.
