Wine training, Dalla Terra, London

Our centennial vineyards stretch across the sloping fields of Milo and Santa Maria di Licodia, between Mt Etna top and the Ionian Sea. From their bush-trained vines the Doc Etna Bianco ERSE is produced, blending Carricante with indigenous grape varieties such as Minnella and Catarratto.  ERSE, vinified in stainless steel tanks, is our interpretation of a variety which has been considered for a long time a “deluxe” minor wine grape, due to its remarkable characteristics of freshness and longevity.

Appena stappato, mentre l’Etna è in eruzione, l’ Etna DOC Bianco A’ Puddara 2012, Carricante in purezza.  Ancora pochi mesi affinamento in bottiglia,  sarà sul mercato ad aprile 2014.

Grazie ad Andrea Gori!

A’ Puddara Etna Bianco Tenuta di Fessina 2012 da uve in contrada Cavaliere, Santa Maria di Licodia un velo di legno stringe un poco il naso ma lo zolfo e la mineralità escono ad ogni giro del bicchiere insieme ad albicocca e note balsamiche. Bocca struggente e dolce con bei contrasti ritmati. Abbisogna di tempo, materia e sostanza non mancano, forse un poco di eleganza in meno del 2011 ma darà soddisfazioni comunque. 88+” (Andrea Gori)
