Cellar for up to 5 years. Serve chilled.

Entrepreneur Massimo Lentsch was already making wine in Dubrovnik when he visited Lipari on holiday and fell in love with this little Aeolian island off the north coast of Sicily. In 2013 he opened his winery here which is now the largest one on the island and specialises in making delicious and approachable wines from classic local varieties like Malvasia delle Lipari and Carricante. In total the estate has 20 acres spread across the island planted on rich volcanic soils.

This crisp and refreshing white is named after the pomice stone which is commonly found in the vineyards here. It’s primarily crafted from the indigenous Malvasia delle Lipari variety along with some Carricante and other local grapes. The grapes are harvested by hand and fermented in acacia wood barrels for the Malvasia and oak barrels for the Carricante. After 6 months of ageing on the lees in these barrels the wine is then blended and bottled.

Reminiscent of the crisp, saline breezes of the Aeolian islands, this refreshing white is bursting with vibrant citrus, white peaches and honeysuckle notes. The first sips reveals a bright acidity, light body and smooth texture which makes it a great choice to serve as an aperitif or partner for fresh seafood, grilled octopus or leafy salads.
