    From the slopes of Mount Etna in Sicily, one of the most active volcanoes in the world.  Warm days and cool nights, combined with volcanic low-vigour soil, ensures wines of great intensity.  The Donnafugata `Sul Vulcano` Etna Bianco wines come from high-altitude vineyards at 750 metres above sea level. It is made solely from Carricante, the ancient white wine grape variety thought to have been growing on the volcanic slopes of Mt Etna for at least a thousand years.

    This wine is straw yellow/gold in colour.  The nose boasts aromas of golden apple and citrus fruit, with subtle notes of Mediterranean herbs and flint. The palate is fresh and savoury, with mineral characters and a long finish.

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
