Carpene's Etna Bianco Doc Jancu, a successful wine with a sober and measured style. The grapes, 60 percent Carricante plus 40 percent Catarratto, come from espalier-trained vineyards. After the harvest, the carefully selected bunches are sent for vinification which begins with pressing, followed by 24 hours of cryomaceration and soft pressing. The must obtained undergoes 48 hours of static decantation and then ferments at a controlled temperature for about 30 days. The wine is aged in stainless steel tanks for 3 months and then in the bottle for at least another 3-4 months. It is an Etna white with a particular character, due to the terroir and the not small percentage of Catarratto that makes itself felt, both in the aromatic spectrum and in the consistency. It will give its best at the table thanks to its excellent versatility in combinations and the ability to enhance flavors without overwhelming them.
Tenuta Monte Gorna is a family business dominated by a pure passion for the land and for wine, a passion that has been handed down from father to son for three generations. The second generation was responsible for the restructuring of the land owned, entirely replanted with vineyards. The third generation has the task of continuing in the wake of growth and quality and of making the volcanic wines of Tenuta Monte Gorna known to the Italian and foreign public.
