About This Item
Overview:Cavanera Ripa di Scorciavacca is a Bianco Etna DOC cru that encapsulates in its intense and refined bouquet the aromas and complexity of a unique terroir in the field of Sicilian viticulture—the Etna Volcano. This land of harsh high mountainside winters and lush vines grown in full sunlight gives an elegant Firriato white, a union of Carricante and Catarratto. This single vineyard is the object of meticulous care due to the special microclimate that it enjoys. The ‘young’ soils are particularly fertile due to the presence of a high concentration of nutrients. This, together with the farming practices of leaf removal and promotion of the vines’ strength give the wine a decisive character, with a balanced acidity and softness and an extraordinary potential longevity.
Tasting Notes: Intense straw yellow with green hues. The enchanting intensity of its scents afford distinct profile on the nose with hints of yellow wild flowers, broom and acacia, blended with fruity aromas of whitefleshed fruit, apples and ripe peaches as well as of aromatic herbs and seaweed. Gentle yet unrelenting, it shines brightly for its elegance and body. Aristocratic and pure, it stands out among the great white wines grown at high altitudes. A matchless minerality. Marvelous for its rigorous style, it stands out for its force and roundness. a white mirroring the volcanic terroir of origin, expressing round and smooth profile on the palate.
Pairing: Fish and seafood dishes.
