Tenuta di Fessina A'Puddara Bianco
Volcanic white - literally - packed with a citrus fruit punch.
Pioneer and women – among the producers who have given new impetus to enology on Etna, Silvia Maestrelli – comes from a Florentine entrepreneurial family, she emigrated to Milan for love – arrived on Etna in 2006, on the trail of falling in love with this land rich in contrasts. A real coup de foudre for a difficult land, strongly masculine, but of enormous charm and equally great enological potential. Thus began a new phase for her life and a research, both personal and professional, which will give life in 2007 – after long and detailed negotiations with the ancient and numerous landowners – at the birth of Tenuta di Fessina. A project in which the sensitivity of a “feminine” oenological vision, combined with the unquestioned technical skills of consultants and collaborators, has allowed us to create in just 10 years from the foundation – one of the most successful and recognizable cellars in the Etna area, perfect ambassador in the world of new Sicilian viticulture.
Another expression of 100% Carricante from a vineyard in Santa Maria di Licodia, which is next to Milo where Musmeci is grown. It is 900 metres up and planted with 80-90 year old vines.
Although barely a kilometre away the differing terroir creates a very different wine.
"The Etna Bianco Carricante A' Puddara is a terrific wine with lots of territory-driven character. This is a lean white wine that shows enough volume and texture to be considered a mid-weight wine to pair with shellfish or more sophisticated seafood dishes. The bouquet offers a lot of fragrant intensity with preserved lemon, white peach and crushed volcanic rock. Some 10,000 bottles were produced. Fruit is sourced from pre-phylloxera vines planted 940 meters above sea level." 91/100, Monica Larner, Wine Advocate
