This wine is dedicated to the Musmeci family, in particular, Mr. Musmeci, who for so many years looked after these estate vineyards ("I vigne di Fessina") with so much love that today the winery is able to cultivate 80-year-old vines. Winemaker, Gian Domenica Negro, strives for purity in all of his Etna Bianco wines, and with the Musmeci, he is able to realize the full potential of the Carricante grape.
Along with aromas and flavors of flinty minerality and herbs, Musmeci Bianco retains a core of stone fruit and candied citrus with undertones of marzipan and toast. Marked acidity and minerality carry this wine through a complex, balanced, and long finish that indicates there is plenty of life ahead for this beautiful white wine.
Pair with fresh oysters, tuna tartare, and pan-seared sea scallops.
