Carricante – is a white wine indigenous to Sicily, Italy. This late-ripening vine is the main variety used in the Etna DOC.
On the whole, Carricante wines offer a broad range of refreshing citrus aromas – anything from lemon and lime to grapefruit to orange – alongside cooling herbal notes such as mint and aniseed. An underlying mineral, slatey character is also to be found in the finest examples.
Carricante is ideal with richer poultry dishes, roasted pork, or meaty beef brisket.
