Vino di Anna, Palmento Bianco


We have run out of stock for this item.

Pale straw in colour, this wine has attractive aromas of grapefruit and lemon with floral notes. The palate is dry, crisp and flinty with firm acidity. Citrus flavours are coupled with some white peach and a delicate nuttiness. The wine is light bodied yet flavoursome with an appealing sapid, mineral finish.

Palmento Bianco is a made from organically grown, indigenous Sicilian white grapes, Catarratto, Insolia, Grecanico and Grillo principally grown high on the northern slopes of Mt Etna, Sicily. All the fruit was hand harvested from different vineyards, vinified separately, and then blended to produce a fresh, citrus, dry, mineral white wine.
