White Table Wine
Terra Costantino’s ‘deAetna’ is an elegant, versatile wine from one of the boutique producers responsible for taking Sicily’s wines from inconsequential to sought-after over the past decade.
Fruit comes from the Terra Costantino estate’s carefully tended Certified Organic vineyard on the southeast slope of Mount Etna. Grapes are harvested by hand, and wine ages for several months in stainless steel prior to bottling.
A blend dominated by Carricante, one of the island’s indigenous grapes. Carricante brings a balance of grainy grounded minerality, assertive citrus acidity and white flower aromatics to play.
“Crazy aromas of dried fruits with a unique undertone of volcanic notes, like sulfur. Full-bodied with plenty of fruit with dried apple and honey as well as pineapple. It’s dense and real with excellent length and focus. 80% carricante, 145% catarratto and 5% minnella. From organically grown grapes. Drink now.”
