4 /5

The Contrada Calderara, a white Etna DOC decidedly sublime. La Cantina Cottanera decided to enhance the expressive uniqueness of its vineyards through a challenging project that manages to translate into wine the voice of the earth of his five districts.
The result is an expressive and solar Carricante, with the vivacity of citrus and floral notes of broom flowers and lemon, crossed by a savory vein iodine shades from almost electric capers and Mediterranean herbs.

Reviews about Cottanera Etna Bianco Contrada Calderara 2016



Etna Bianco DOC Contrada Calderara is a white wine signed by Cottanera cellar, an important productive reality of the area surrounding the Sicilian volcano. Obtained from the vinification of grapes of a native variety, Carricante, this wine faithfully chronicles this unique area. The vines cultivated by the company, which can boast an age of nearly 50 years, are located on a volcanic soil and is placed at an altitude of approximately 750 meters. The production process reflects the attention to the enhancement of the raw material as a result of the pressing, the must is cold-macerated for a day. The fermentation is carried out for 40% in French oak barrels, while the remaining 60% in concrete tanks. The same distinction will be maintained in the refining phase, which takes place on the skins purposes for about a year. Etna Bianco DOC Contrada Calderara is an elegant wine, perfect to be drunk young, but that may well evolve if it is left up to a maximum of 4-5 years in the cellar.
