"There’s a tropical flair to the 2020 Etna Bianco DeAetna that makes it a total pleasure on the nose, as notes of pineapple, green melon and hints of confectioners’ spice fill the senses. It’s soft-textured, enveloping the palate in ripe orchard fruits, yet nicely balanced by lime-tinged acidity that maintains marvelous freshness. The 2020 De Aetna finishes with a gentle tug of residual tension and salty mineral tones that are left to linger on. Start to finish, this is a highly pleasurable Etna Bianco. The blend is 80% Carricante, 15% Catarratto and 5% Minnella."
"Terra Costantino is a family-owned estate located in the heart of the Etna DOC in Sicily. This is a protected area of traditional and historic wine production located on the mid-slope of Mt. Etna. Terra Costantino is located on the south-eastern slope of the volcano in the town of Viagrande, in Contrado Blandano. Established in 1978 by Dino Costantino, today his son Fabio runs the estate with him. With vineyards stretching across 10 hectares planted between 450m - 550m above sea level, together they cultivate the indigenous grapes of Etna: Carricante and Catarratto for white wines and Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio for red wines.
Terra Costantino achieved organic certification in 2002 and Luca D'Attoma has been the consulting oenologist providing advice and counsel since 2010." - Importer
