Straw yellow, in the nose it expresses all the typicality of Carricante, thanks to an aromatic profile characterised by notes of white flowers and fresh fruit, reminiscent of yellow apple and tropical fruit. All enhanced by a radiant mineral depth. Crisp on the palate, deep, streamlined and beautifully savoury. It closes with a very persistent finish.

A native Sicilian grape, Carricante recently risked disappearing, after having been one of the most widely cultivated varieties for centuries, and not just on the slopes of Etna. The resulting wines are deep and multi-faceted - like Al-Cantàra's Etna Bianco DOC "'Luci Luci" - characterised by an unmistakable savoury soul and an outstanding capacity for ageing. Over the long distance, they are bottles capable of amazing, the harshness remains largely intact while the aromas take on a welcoming and engaging dimension.

We are so fortunate to have this amazing wine service available to us, it has been our lockdown saviour. Every single bottle of wine has been wonderful. All bottles seem very carefully and conscientiously selected from vineyards I wouldn't typically find in my local supermarket which makes such a refreshing change. Highly recommend.

I was looking for some nice light red wine but wasn't too familiar with Burgundy wines - except for their price! Spoke to the in-house expert who very quickly understood what I was after and suggested a selection of great value wines that exactly matched what I was after. I was really impressed with the depth of knowledge. No fuss ordering and delivered on time.
