    2019 Grottafumata “Lato Sud” Carricante (Sicily, IT) 3W

    Nerello Mascalese from Sicily is like the cool, mysterious stranger at the wine party. "Lato Sud" is its secret handshake—a wine that's as volcanic as its origins. It's like sipping on Sicilian sunshine with a hint of smoldering volcano. Expect flavors of red cherries and a touch of Mediterranean herbs, making you feel like you're lounging on a Sicilian beach.

    About The Varietal

    Carricante

    Carricante is a historic white grape variety native to the eastern region of Sicily. It is believed to have thrived on the volcanic slopes of Mount Etna for over a millennium.

    About The Producer

    Grottafumata

    Originally a 10-hectare olive grove, Mauro Cutuli and Mariangela Prestilippo inherited the land and promptly recognized its potential for exceptional winemaking. Presently, they produce only one white and one red wine. The winemaking pair opts not to adhere to the Etna Bianco and Rosso DOC regulations, preferring to craft their wines with a natural, dynamic, and independent approach, distinct from the intricacies of the Italian bureaucratic system.
