Light straw yellow with intense green reflections. Pleasant hints of grapefruit, white peach and herbs mark the nose of this wine, which shows freshness and minerality on the palate.
One of the largest – and oldest – producers in the region, Tornatore owns 46ha of vineyards on the north side of active volcano Mount Etna, 1,000m above sea level. Established in 1865, the estate is still run by the same family. The focus at Tornatore is on native grape varieties: Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio, Carricante and Catarratto.
While the varietals used are traditional, their winemaking style is more modern in approach, with lower alcohol and more emphasis on fruit. These wines have quickly become some of our favourites and offer incredible complexity and intrigue.
