2016 Pianta IGT Sicilia

Case of 6 bottles

Varietals: Carricante, cataratto, minnella (organic)

Ageing/Vinification: 225L oak barrels

Alcohol: 12.5%

Description: A single vineyard Carricante, with minute amounts of Catarratto, Minnella and Muscatello in the blend. There's an enticing hint of vanilla pods 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.
