Born from the skillful vinification of the white grape vines Carricante, cultivated in volcanic soils with a high vocation and arranged in terraces at an altitude of 650 meters above sea level, in the northern slope of the volcano. Straw yellow colored wine with light green shadow that offers mineral notes with menthol scents typical of high wines, green apple with primary aromas characteristic of the variety.
93pts Wine Enthusiast "This radiant, savory white proves why Etna is so hot right now. It opens with heady aromas of spring blossom, Mediterranean brush and wild herb while the bright, delicious palate delivers Meyer lemon, yellow pear and apple alongside a tangy, saline note. It's supremely elegant and energized thanks to bright acidity."
91pts James Suckling "A very classic dry white for this appellation that combines all the lemon character - from blossoms to candied fruit - of the Carricante grape with the special, smoky minerality of Etna. Plenty of depth at the moderately firm finish."
Lying in the northern side of Mount Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe, Tornatore enjoys the benefits of the area with soil derived from the disintegration of the masses of lava, ashes and lapilli and the climate which is characterized by mild temperatures, reflecting the influence of the mountain reliefs from the Nebrodi side. The result is a late maturing environment in consequence of the exposure and the predominant altitude that promotes strong thermal excursions. The combination of soil, climate and the skill of the winemakers, have made the northern slope of Etna an ideal area for the production of high-quality wines.
