A complex nose with floral and spicy aromas. The palate is intense, with hints of vanilla. Pair with light pasta dishes, fish and white meats. 100% Carricante from old vines. Vigne Niche is barrel fermented and aged in large oak barrels. It is bottled roughly 12 months after harvest, then released after six more months of bottle age. A shy, late blooming wine of unusual complexity and great longevity, it will reward you for your patience with a rare, noble beauty.

Wine AdvocateThis is a spectacular expression of Carricante, and I'd be very curious to try the wine again in five year's time when it is further down its evolutionary track. The 2015 Etna Bianco Calderara Sottana is a beautiful and generous expression from the most exciting up-and-coming denomination in Southern Italy. This is a full and generous white that offers shapely contours and soft edges in terms of mouthfeel. The bouquet is fruity, floral and mineral driven all at the same time. Seen as a whole, its aromatic nuances create a lasting sense of complexity and finesse.
