Story of the wine:
The wines produced from the vineyards surrounding the Etna volcano are the new, re-discovered wines of the last decade. In the 1990s Etna was on its death bed with just a handful of producers. Then in the 2000s the region and the local grape varieties were recognised as being capable of making great wines. The vineyards are all in local districts called Contrada, each of which has different characteristics to bring to its wines. Cottanera was founded in the 1990s by Guglielmo Cambria together with his brother Enzo and is now recognised as being one of the key wineries that sparked the Etna revival. White Barbazzale is made from a blend of Catarratto and Viogner grapes.
Grape(s): Catarratto and a small percentage of Viognier
Area: Contrada Cottanera, Castiglione di Sicilia
Straw yellow in colour, with light green highlights. Mixed, delicate scent of wisteria and broom on an iodine background. A spirited freshness, leaving a pleasing, full-bodied sensation.
