About the Wine: 

"When speaking about the rise to fame currently underway in Sicily's Mt. Etna it is impossible not to mention Salvo Foti. A native of the city of Catania, Salvo studied enology and began his career in 1981 as a technical and agrarian advisor to some noted estates in eastern Sicily such as Gulfi, Benanti (where he brought the Pietramarina to great heights) and Biondi, all of whose wines are universally recognized as among the best in Sicily. 

A number of years ago, Salvo’s love of the grapes and soils of Etna, in particular, led him to initiate a project called I Vigneri. It takes its name from an association that existed in the Etna region in 1435, Maestranzi dei Vigneri, an association of vineyard workers that greatly influenced the wine culture of the Etna region." 

Tasting Notes: 

"The Etna Bianco Aurora has the distinct tension and slight saltiness known to the Carricante grape but with a delicate feel that brings to mind white burgundy but with an exotic edge." 

Organically grown.
