IGT Terre Siciliane

Grillo, Catarratto, Zibibbo e Carricante dell’Etna

The high percentage of clay present in Pianoro Cuddìa’s soil gives rise to a wine that perfectly reflects the organoleptic properties of its earth. A blend of four different native vine varieties, Quater vitis Bianco could be considered a genuine interpretation of Sicily, one that encapsulates the whole island in one single glass. Catarratto grapes give complex fruity fragrances, enhanced by the aromatic characteristics of the Zibibbo, in balance with Grillo’s elegance and the minerality of Carricante, which is the product of Etna, grown at 700 metres above sea level in the Cavanera Estate. The balance produced by the sweetness and the core supporting acidity make Quater Vitis bianco a wine that is destined to age in the bottle. It lends itself well to professional vertical wine tastings that compare it with other international whites with a similar longevity, like Reisling, Great Burgundy whites, Grand Cru and Premier Cru

Quater Vitis Bianco

Four white grape crus give Sicily in a glass

All of Sicily in just one glass, many personalities in just one bottle. Quater Vitis Bianco encases four crus from four native white grape vine varieties: Grillo, Carricante, Cataratto and Zibibbo, varieties par excellence of Sicilian oenology. Together they give rise to a complex and sophisticated blend. The four different varieties differ in their organoleptic qualities and character; as a consequence the cuvees are subject to individual programmes of production from the vine to the winery.
