contrada Blandano

etna bianco doc

Contrada Blandano is born from a selection of our best grapes, from our passion, time and patience.
To produce our Contrada Blandano we only use the grapes of the old vines, making a careful selection during ripening in the vineyard and at the time of harvest. We try to bottle only the best of what the Viagrande area can offer. A long aging, both in cask and in bottle, gives the wine complexity, structure and elegance.

Grapes
Carricante 90%, Catarratto 10%. Ripening in the last ten days of September.
Average age of vines
old vines.
Altitude
450-550 m.a.s.l.
Soil type
Sand of volcanic origin.
Site climate
High-hill with considerable day-night temperature swings.
Vinification
The destemmed grapes are macerated at a controlled temperature before soft pressing. The must is allowed to settle at low temperature until completely limpid. After racking, the must is brought to a temperature of 18 °C to encourage fermentation, which is completed at a temperature of 16 °C.
Maturation
Several months in oak barrel and then in bottle.
