Tasting Notes

Why we like it

Le Sabbie dell’Etna Bianco is a wine that is fully established in Firriato’s history. A label of the volcano’s pioneering oenology; it combines the qualities of Carricante and Catarratto—two vines that are symbolic of Etna’s viticultural tradition. The terroir is completely different from the rest of Sicily, with cold winters and less intense sunlight. The grapes here have slower ripening times and take on their fragrant aromas in a more linear way. Freshness and fragrance distinguish this wine together with its persistent tangy taste. Le Sabbie dell’Etna Bianco bewitches the senses with its aromas and flavour. The volcanic soil characterised by its high drainage capacity gives the grapes, and therefore the wine, a unique minerality enriched by the aromatic profile of Carricante, which in vinification gives elegant nuances of white fruit; and the supporting structure of Catarratto.
