Costanzo Mofete Bianco
Etna Bianco DOC

Lemon, camomile, spearmint and old rose, the aromas open up beautifully over a few hours from a lemon focus into an intriguing floral and herb infused offering.  Wild honey, greengage, peach stone and hay, a taut, mineral wine, bone dry with a twist of bitter lemon on the finish.  Pure and intense, a very fine wine.

Costanzo Mofete Bianco
Etna  DOC

Grapes Carricante (70%),  Catarratto (25%), Minnella and Trebbiano (5%)

Lemon, camomile, spearmint and old rose, the aromas open up beautifully over a few hours from a lemon focus into an intriguing floral and herb infused offering.  Wild honey, greengage, peach stone and hay, a taut, mineral wine, bone dry with a twist of bitter lemon on the finish.  Pure and intense, a very fine wine.

The vineyard is north facing at an altitude of between 700-750m.  Soils are seventy percent black and brown volcanic sands, rich in organic matter.  The vines are traditionally trained using a goblet system where the vine is supported with a chestnut pole.  The vines are between thirty and one hundred years old and yield around a kilogram of fruit per plant.  
The harvest must be manual and grapes are selected in the vineyard and on a sorting table before pressing.  Fermentation is in temperature controlled steel tanks at eighteen degrees.  There is no period of maceration and the wine undergoes a partial malolactic conversion (fermentation) in steel tanks and is aged in steel tanks for seven months before bottling.  13%
