The Winemaker In Italian “PIANTE / SPARSE” literally means “spare vines” and this is properly how this wine has been made. We don’t own a whole vineyards of white grapes, but in our old vineyards of red grapes, the ancestor used to plant, here and there, some vines of white grapes.
Mainly Carricante , but also Catarratto as well and more few vines of indigenouse grape like Minnella Bianca, Zibibbo and others. with a terrific work we mapped them, understanding how to lead them to a dedicated and separated harvest done to produce a very classy white wine.
Tasting Notes Acidity, freshness and a prominent mineral body are the main feature of its personality. Timing is everything in producing this wine: guessing the perfect ripening moment of all the different plants of the different varietals. This is why this is a very rare wine, produced only in the best vintages and just in case of a perfect balance in grapes.
