Details

Chianta Etna Bianco Ciro Biondi, Natural wine, Carricante, Minella and others, volcanic soils, skin contact, delicious, elegant, complex. A rich and complex white wine made from very low yields of Carricante in an amazing black soil vineyard on the slopes of the unique Etna Volcano. These white wines are more on the savoury than fruity spectrum. There are notes of resin, herbs, farmyard and then subtle but very ripe stone fruits underneath. They are fantastic food wines with something oily and Mediterranean.

Ciro Biondi is a real colourful character, well travelled and married to and English woman, Ciro resides on his native Etna and cultivates tiny plots of old vineyards in the incredible black volcanic soil of the mountain. The vines are very old and his methods are natural meaning yields are low. Some years, barely 1500 bottles of this delicious white wine are coaxed from his vines. The red to is in short supply although more bottles are made. It is well worth buying some of Biondi's wines as they are the true taste of Etna and we tend to run out quick!
