Murgo Etna Bianco is a white wine aged on lees made by Murgo with the Catarratto and Carricante varieties in the DOC Etna Bianco, in Sicily (Italy).
Owned by Scammacca del Murgo, one of Etna’s oldest wine-growing families, they have been working the land for more than 100 years. However, from 1980, they decided to bottle their own wines, championing native varieties and involving the whole family in the project, including the eight children.
Murgo Etna Bianco comes from their own vineyards within the DOC Etna. These vines are about 30 years old and planted in volcanic soils. They are cultivated using traditional agriculture and the harvest is carried out manually in boxes.
In the winery, the Murgo Etna Bianco grapes are gently pressed and cold macerated in stainless steel tanks for a few days. They then ferment with selected yeasts at a controlled temperature of 17°C and the wine spends at least 3 months there before being bottled.
Murgo Etna Bianco is a wine that combines the acidity of the Carricante variety and the finesse of the Catarratto. A wonderfully original and very elegant small production.
