The 2012 Etna Bianco Erse is 80% Carricante with Minella and Catarratto. It is a well-executed wine with a light straw appearance and pretty aromas of citrus and exotic fruit. Carricante fruit is harvested from 100-year-old head-pruned vines from Milo and Santa Maria di Licodia. Drink 2014-2018

Wine maker notes
Erse is named after the Greek goddess of sunrise as a fitting tribute to the time of day when this dew-kissed vineyard is the most picturesque. This Erse is made from a blend of Carricante with indigenous grape varieties such as Minnella and Catarratto grown in the ancient volcanic soils on the hillsides of Mount Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe. Fermentation and aging are both carried out in stainless, granting the grapes a freshness and transparent sense of the mineral profile from the volcanic soils.
