    Etna is the tallest active volcano in Europe currently standing 3.300 m high.

    The soil is volcanic mixed with a large percentage of sand. Such sandy soil is a major Phylloxera deterent, so the epidemic that otherwise devastated much of Europe’s vines in the late 19th century never settled in Etna. For this reason, there are vines over 100 years old and highly prized for heirloom fruit. Some of the vineyard locations are at dizzying heights, rivaling those found in parts of Argentina. The higher the vineyard site, the richer the soil and optimal sun exposure.

    Carricante is grown uniquely on Etna. Wines are remarkably unique, rich in fruit, medium bodied with tingling acidity and a mineral finish that even goes so far as to suggest the very ash of the volcano.

    The Enrico IV is a top notch example, one capable of developing for some years in bottle due to the excellent levels of natural acidity.

    The fruit brings to mind grapefruits and mint, tropical fruits and a touch of spice, with an elgantly structured finish.

    Big enough to partner with most fish and seafood dishes, it also sits well with white meats and medium-bodied cheeses.
