For five centuries and seventeen generations, the Planeta family has been involved in the Sicilian agricultural sector. Their work on the island has contributed to the revitalization of Sicilian winemaking, now one of the most dynamic and sought-after viticultural regions in the world. 

The history of Etna is studded with the historic eruptions which have shaped it. That of 1614 is legendary, lasting ten years and is the longest ever recorded. Halting just on the border of the vineyards of Sciaranuova. A name strongly evocative of our Cru dell’Etna; Carricante with a small addition of Riesling. High altitude black soils confer a fresh, savory and mineral style.

Tasting Notes

In this case, the pale golden color does not anticipate the explosion of aromas of ripe fruit and the aromatic content of white flowers which magically transport the taster to the slopes of Etna. On the palate as well the wine manages to combine softness and strength with a drinkable richness, with fruit flavors of lemon peel and green apple linked to an endearing mineral power which prolongs the finish.

Food Pairing

An extraordinary companion for dishes based on fish of a certain oiliness and thus ideal for any gastronomic experience encountered by the sea.
