Winemaker Notes: The history of Etna is studded with the historic eruptions which have shaped it. That of 1614 is legendary, lasting ten years and the longest ever recorded, halting just on the border of the vineyards of Sciaranuova. A name strongly evocative of our Cru dell’Etna; Carricante with a small addition of Riesling. High altitude black soils confer a fresh, savory and mineral style.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Robert Parker - “The 2016 Sicilia Carricante Eruzione 1614 is comprised of 90% Carricante and 10% Riesling. This wine offers many exciting assets that distinguish it from its competition. First, that supporting presence of Riesling adds some of those benzine and resin-like aromas to the overall complexity of the bouquet. It is subtle, but the Riesling impact is well integrated within the broader texture of the wine. Second, the bouquet shows fruity tones of exotic fruit and perfumed honeydew melon, but it also offers drying mineral tones of brimstone and crushed seashell. This wine should continue to evolve over the next ten years.”


James Suckling - “The white pepper and sliced lemon character really comes through. Some thyme, too. Full body, plenty of fruit and a fresh and clean finish. Cool wine. Drink now.”


Wine Enthusiast - “Made predominantly from Nerello Mascalese and a small percentage of Nerello Cappuccio, this wine offers alluring aromas of red berry, blue flower, crushed stone and wild herb. It’s elegantly structured and focused, evoking crushed raspberry, Marasca cherry, savory black pepper and graphite alongside taut, refined tannins and bright acidity. Drink through 2026.”
