Fessina Etna Bianco A'Puddara 2018

Fessina Etna Bianco A'Puddara 2018

Tuscan wine producer Silvia Maestrelli, and Federico Curtaz bought Tenuta di Fessina on Etna’s northern slopes in 2007, part of the growing band of producers on this active volcano.  From just a decade ago numbers have increased almost tenfold to around 40 wineries, all of whom make less than 3% of Sicily’s total production. Tenuta di Fessina dedicated this wine to Sicily, because, like the hen in the Ovid poem, Sicily is mother to all who live there. Those who look to the night sky can see the Seven Sisters constellation (the Pleiades) outlined elegantly above Mt. Etna, shining over the upper hillside vineyards of Carricante.

Tasting notes: Straw-yellow in colour, aromas of ripe fruits and minerality complement undertones of aromatic herbs, flint, and pears.  On the palate, crisp acidity and a smooth body show how nuanced white wine can become on this island.
