Terrazze Dell` Etna
This wine is made from a blend of 15% Carricante, a native Etna varietal known for its finesse and crisp character, and 85% Nerello Mascalese vinified in bianco (as a white wine). The vineyards are located in the municipality of Randazzo at 750-900 metres above sea level, on the northern slopes of Etna. The soil is volcanic and the climate is cool, with a notable diurnal temperature range and good ventilation. The vines are planted on terrazze or terraces, are free standing and trained using vertical shoot positioning. The vines are planted at a density of 9,000 vines per hectare. Ciuri is the Sicilian word for flower derived from Latin.
