Good full bright yellow. Perfumed aromas of melon, honey and lime. Light, fine-grained fresh citrus and melon flavors are deepened by subtle peach and mineral notes, which gain power on the long back end. The finish is nicely focused and offers repeating citrus and floral notes. Made from Carricante vines that are mostly over 100 years old planted at 850 meters above sea level on the eastern slope of Etna. (Ian D'Agata, Vinous, August 2019)

Great vibrant freshness and minerality. I would have called it a St Aubin

Very interesting wine, mineralic, deep. Few would guess its Sicilly
