2016 Pianta IGT Sicilia

Case of 6 bottles

Varietals: Carricante, Cataratto, Minella (organic)

Ageing/Vinification: 9 months in French barrique

Alcohol: 12.5%

Description: A single vineyard Carricante, with small amounts of Catarratto, Minella, and Muscatello in the blend. There is an enticing hint of vanilla pod on the nose, a very subtle reminder that this wine spent 9 months in French oak. There's nothing heavy handed about it though – the fruit is predominantly grilled peaches, with a splash of woodspice and terrific freshness.
