The 2019 Etna Bianco Mofete presents a savory bouquet of nectarine, ginger and dusty yellow flowers. It’s silky and pliant in feel, with ripe orchard fruits giving way to a more tactile display of salty minerals and inner florals. This tapers off to tension, a bit clipped, but more likely due more to its youthful state, resonating on nuances of raw almond and orange oil. The Mofete is a blend of 70% Carricante and 30% Catarratto. Drinking range: 2022 - 2026 Rating: 89 Eric Guido, www.vinous.com (Jun 2021)

70% Carricante 30% Catarratto. Medium straw yellow. Fruity and flowery at the nose, with yellow citrus pulp, balsamic and mineral hints. Fresh, long, insinuating and structured in mouth.Winemaker's notes (Sep 2020)

Palmento Costanzo

A property of 14 hectares in Contrada Santo Spirito, Passopisciaro, on the northern slopes of Etna. 10 hectares are planted with vines on walled terraces on volcanic rocks between 600-800 metres altitude. The Costanzos came here in 2011 - they are from Catania - and meticulously restored the palmento (the word for the olive millstone which gave the farm its name). The vineyards are planted employing the ‘gobelet' method and farmed organically. The 2017’s are certified organic. This is an amazing new project which has been given all the investment and attention it needed to make great wines from the outset.
