Carricante

The carricante is an ancient white grape variety that has always been grown on the slopes of the volcano, especially at higher altitudes, where, at times, the nerello mascalese struggles to complete its maturation. Its name derives from the Sicilian expression "u carricanti", which underlines the abundant production of its plants, capable of filling the grape carts. It is traditionally grown as a sapling, on soils of volcanic sands rich in minerals. Its terroir of choice is the splendid landscape of the eastern slope of Etna, which descends towards the sea from the top of the volcano. The cool climate and the remarkable temperature changes between day and night, contribute to give the grapes intense aromas and flavors. In the past, the carricante was often vinified as a blend with other grape varieties grown on Etna, such as catarratto, minnella bianca and inzolia. Today it is more and more often vinified in purity and constitutes the main base of Etna Bianco Doc.

Bianco 'Porticello' by Tenuta di Castellaro is an organic wine dedicated to the history and nature of Lipari, reminiscent of the famous Porticello beach with its pier, where the workers of the pumice quarries transported the loads to be loaded on the ships. The wine restores the suggestions of the saltiness to the eyes and palate. Dry white, straw yellow in color with bright green reflections, which comes from the combination of the vivacity of the native vines of Carricante and the aromaticity of Moscato Bianco and Malvasia delle Lipari. The scent is herbaceous and the fruity notes, with hints of apple, make it fresh and balanced.
