From the suppliers of top Michelin restaurants in Britain, this stunning wine will not disappoint you.
Our centennial vineyards stretch across the sloping fields of Milo and Santa Maria di Licodia, between Mount Etna top and the Ionian Sea. From their bush-trained vines the DOC Etna Bianco Erse is produced, blending Carricante with indigenous grape varieties such as Minnella and Catarratto.
Erse, vinified in stainless steel tanks, is our interpretation of a variety which has been considered for a long time a "deluxe" minor wine grape, due to its remarkable characteristics of freshness and longevity.
