Tasting Notes
Pietradolce is a relative newcomer as a winery founded in 2005 but their vines are anything but! The old bush vine Caricante used here are between 100 and 120 years old and are planted 850 metres up on the eastern slope of Mount Etna, yielding only 1 kilo of grapes per vine, the yields are tiny. the complex yeasty, mineral wrapped nose with ripe apples and pears draws you in and a powerful palate of lemon rind again pears and melon with minerals and hints of salt, really long and very interesting. No oak here.
