Overview of the Wine
Eastern Sicily: 83 terraces, stretching between Contrada Praino and Contrada Volpare, through the pathways of the Milo forest, 700 m above sea level, on the eastern slopes of Mount Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe.

Maugeri is the wine-growing project of an Etnean family, who have returned to their home district to make wine once more. The unbroken line of more than 2.8 km of lava dry-stone walling borders the 7 hectares of the property, an amphitheatre of fertile volcanic soil, in a close embrace with the Mediterranean landscape.

Renato remains a child of the 1960s, knowing every corner of the estate, with his children Carla, Michela and Paola accompanying him in every decision.

Three professional women, who through the wine give expression to the intimate relationship between the calling of the land and their family values linked to environmental and social sustainability.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Clear and pale lemon, hints of yellow pulp fruit, floral bouquet of broom, citrus aromas of lemon, ginger, aromatic herbs. Fresh and mineral with a pleasant finish of citrus notes.

96 Points Review Ian Blackburn

This is a sensational Etna Blanco - pure Carricante, with great detail, freshness, focus, purity, concentration, roundness and purity.  The modern and sleek label on the outside is contiguous with the modern, pure effort on the inside.  I think this is one of the movers and shakers to watch... this long aging varietal is really the star of ETNA and while others may want the reds to be at the top; the white wines are the gift of the volcano.  Citrus peal, lemon curd, white flowers, ginger, fennal, and thyme - love the nose, and the detailed mouth of creamy intensity but with a clean, pure and focused finish that speaks to the longevity and quality of this wine.  Color 15, Aromas 23.5 Balance: 23.5 Overall Impression: 34 = 96 points.
