Nostru Carricante Cortese - 1317, 2018

Italy

Grape Variety

Carricante

Carricante is a grape variety mostly cultivated on the slopes of Mount Etna that grows well at altitude, with the vineyards all above 400 metres. The name, coming from Sicilian dialect “u carricanti”, means “heavily laden” and refers to the naturally high quantity of grapes the variety produces if not tempered through pruning. Pale in colour, the 2018 has ripe fresh fruit aromas of lemon and green apples. It is crisp with a pure crystalline structure and refreshing acidity. The funky label depicts the baroque San Giorgio cathedral in the city of Ragusa.
