A rising star in the Etna region, Tornatore is becoming one of the region's biggest and most respected wineries. Their vineyards are located at an altitude of 1,000 meters above sea level on the north side of this active volcano.
The Zottorinotto contrada is situated in the Northen slopes of mount Etna. The grape variety used is one hundred percent Carricante.
The grapes are harvested by hand, placed in small crates and quickly brought to the winery where they are manually selected on a belt-conveyor. Destemmed and slightly crushed, they are sent to the press where they are gently pressed. The must obtained is left to ferment without any temperature checking in wooden barrels of 225 liters. After the fermentation the wine obtained rests on the lees for about 8 months.
Straw yellow with intense gold reflections. Strong hints of vanilla, honey, ginestra flower and mature yellow peach. Elegance and persistence on the palate are perfectly completed by the extraordinary complexity and sapidity
This will be an excellent compliment to tzatziki fish tacos and other seafood fare.
