Cellar for up to 6 years. Serve chilled.

The Nicolosi family have been farming their lands to the east of Mount Etna since the 17th century. The lofty name of the estate is a reference to 1727 when Don Carmelo Nicolosi was made Baron of Villagrande by Emperor Charles VI of Augsburg. Since then the Nicolosis have played a key part in the local winemaking scene, helping to push through Etna’s DOC status in 1968. Today the property is run by Marco who’s passionate about crafting top quality wines from the exceptional Etna terroir.

This stunning white is primarily composed of the indigenous Carricante grape along with a dash of other local Etna varieties. Fruit is sourced from the estate’s Milo Contrada Villagrande vineyard which sits at an altitude of 700 metres. Once in the winery the fruit is fermented with wild yeasts in 500 litre oak barrels and then left to mature for 12 months in the barrel and another year in the bottle.

Wild and powerful in style, this white is sure to impress lovers of Italian white wines thanks to its freshness and complexity. Seville oranges, peaches and apricots dominate on the nose, followed by ripe orchard fruit and hints of toasted oak and spice on the palate. A great wine to enjoy as an aperitif or a partner for roast chicken, mature hard cheeses, or heartier dishes like fresh pasta served with a creamy sauce.
