SPECIFICATIONS

TASTING NOTES

Etna Bianco Pietrarizzo comes from the district of the same name located on the northern slope of Etna, known as the most suitable for high quality production. More precisely we are in the municipality of Castiglione di Sicilia, 650 metres above sea level. Etna Bianco Tornatore is made from Carricante grapes, native vines that express themselves fantastically in this magical place on volcanic soil. After being harvested by hand, the grapes are quickly taken to the cellar where further sorting takes place, followed by cellar operations which end with a five-month period of ageing on the fine lees in oak barrels. Contrada Pietrarizzo offers the excitement of a great white wine that combines freshness and aromatic depth. Intense straw yellow colour with brilliant reflections. The olfactory profile is complex, with aromas of grapefruit, white fruit, exotic fruit and delicately spicy nuances. On the palate it is satisfying, with ripe, rich fruit, accompanied by lively freshness and a savoury and mineral finish. Recommended pairing with seafood risotto, white meats or stewed fish.

THE WINERY

Tornatore

The beginning of vine cultivation along with the production of wine by the Tornatore family dates back to 1865 when the great-grandfather of the current owner took up farming. In 1910, Giuseppe, the current owner's grandfather, built a house with an adjoining millstone in the Piano Fiera district with an adjoining 2 hectares of vineyard, to which a further 2 hectares were added on the northern slope of Etna in the Piano Felci district at an altitude of 1,000 metres above sea level. The Tornatore family has always had a detailed knowledge of the territories of the municipality of Castiglione di Sicilia, since grandfather Giuseppe and uncle Giovanni were appointed cadastral surveyors in the early 1930s, accompanying the topographer to survey parcels, to define boundaries and names of districts. A family, therefore, with deep roots in its territory of origin, which has never neglected its attachment to and respect for it and its traditions in successive generations. Name and address of producer/distributor: Azienda Agricola Tornatore - Via Pietramarina, 8A - CAP 95012 Castiglione di Sicilia. Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
