4 /5

The Sands of Firriato Etna Bianco was born in vineyards located in the town of Castiglione di Sicilia, in the province of Catania. It is obtained from Carricante and Catarratto grapes, picked and selected by hand in the second half of October. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks for 15 days, at a controlled temperature of 16-18ºC. The wine matures on the lees for 3 months in stainless steel tanks and a further 2 months in the bottle before release. The Sands of Firriato Etna Bianco is pale yellow with green tints. The nose opens with fresh floral scents of mimosa and broom that are intertwined with pleasant fruity hints of peach and ripe pear. The palate is rich and full, very fresh, with a long finish. It is perfect with light seafood dishes like the spatula in a potato crust and squid stuffed with mint, this fine white wine goes perfectly even more intense dishes such as fish soup and mussels au gratin.

Nice and pretty colour. Perfume of white flowers: jasmine, lilies ....It was harsh in the mouth for a Sicily.
A 2017 is perfect with boiled shrimp.
Drinking it with friends is always a pleasure.
