Grape variety: Grecanico Dorato 50%, Carricante 50%

Their first white wine started out as an orange wine, fermented with the skins for an extended period. Frank liked the tactile feeling and density, but missed the finesse and precision of the classic French white wines from for example the Loire. With the vintage 2015 Frank changed their technique to search for the purity and flavors of Etna which evolved in maintaining a short period of skin contact and aging their white wines for an extended period in the coldest part of their cellar before bottling. The obtained elegance, purity and density makes this wine very suited to accompany a wide variety of dishes and cuisine, from fish to white meat.
