Facts about this wine

Wine: White wine
Taste: Dry
Volume: Medium
Min. alcohol: 12%

Etna Bianco Superiore is grown in the Milo commune in the Catania province, and is produced from the same grapes as the "regular" Etna Bianco, namely Carricante (80-100%), Catarratto Bianco Commune or Catarratto Lucido (max. 40%), with the addition of Trebbiano and/or Minella Bianca (0-15%). Carricante will often be the dominating grape in this variety.

The Superiore variety has a higher alcohol concentration than its little brother, and is a slightly darker straw yellow white wine with flecks of green. The aroma is delicately fruity, the taste light, fresh, soft and harmonious. All in all a fresh wine with an aroma of apples, pears, citrus and flowers.

A light, mild wine that is well-suited to fish and shellfish, but is used locally for the whole meal.
