Tornatore Etna Bianco

About the Wine:
This Sicilian white offers notes of green apple, mint, white peach, grapefruit, tangerine, fresh green herbs, and volcanic minerality. It has a refreshing salinity and striking acidity. 
About the Producer:
“It is in the volcanic soils of Mt. Etna where the Tornatore family has set deep, centuries old roots. The Tornatores, one the oldest wine growing families on Mt. Etna, have lived in Sicily since 1680 and trace their Etna grape growing back to 1865. That heritage and the Tornatore’s profound respect and understanding of the land is showcased in wines that capture the essence of Etna, deftly balancing concentrated flavors, complexity, freshness and refinement.”
Technical Info:
The grapes were harvested by hand in small crates and quickly brought to the winery where there were manually sorted. The grapes were destemmed and slightly crushed then sent to the vertical press where they were gently pressed. Fermentation occurred at low temperatures—approximately 60˚Farenheit—and the wine remained on the lees for about three months. Total aging was 4 to 6 months in cement tanks to preserve the full fruit character.
