Etna Bianco 'Vulkà' Cantine Nicosia 2021

"Vulkà" is an Etna Bianco with a fresh, mineral and flowing sip, produced on volcanic lands from a blend of Carricante and Catarratto grapes. It begins with a delicate and refined olfactory profile, with notes of white fruit, citrus fruits, aromatic herbs and sapid-mineral references. The sip is agile and elegant, supported by a full freshness and a long and flowing sapid-mineral trail
