Within the plots find by Carlo, a few Carricante vines where already planted. Indeed, in the past it was usual on Etna for farmers to plant, in their small plots, different types of grape varieties. Therefore, when Carlo saw these beautiful Carricante vines, he decided to start vinifying them. Hence begins the story of Alberelli di Giodo Carricante, one of the finest white wines from Etna and Italy. This wine undergoes 20-day fermentation in steel tanks. About 6 months in steel tanks on its lees, followed by few months in concrete before the bottling. It then stays ten months in bottle. Only 2,500 bottles were made in 2020 and the vine have an average age of 50 years sitting between 800-900m above sea level.

"Carlo Ferrini hits it out of the ballpark with this bottle, his first white wine from Etna. This is one of the most exciting new wines I tasted this year. The 2020 Sicilia Carricante is excellent, with a level of freshness, sharpness and focus that makes this a truly memorable drinking experience. The wine is redolent of citrus, wild sage and white flower, and of course you also get plenty of that volcanic character with salty mineral, ash and crushed stone. Winemaking in stainless steel is straightforward, and Carlo holds the wine back one year before it hits the market. This bottle is proof that some of the most interesting wines from Etna today are the whites." 94 Points Robert Parker
