Benanti Noblesse 48 Mesi Metodo Classico Brut 2018

12% abv

Vol- 75cl

The very first and still extremely rare sparkling wine made from Carricante, the noble indigenous white grape of the Etna volcano. The berries are medium-sized with very prunoise skin and a green-yellowish color. The bunches are of average length and scattered. Located between 700 and 850 m a.s.l (2,300 to 2,800 ft a.s.l.), the vineyards are planted on sandy, volcanic soils that are rich in minerals, with a sub-acid profile. The vines are between 20 and 60 years old, and arranged in traditional bush vines (“alberello”) as well as in rows with Guyot training system. A tight planting density of 6,000-7,000 vines per hectare gives a yield of 7,000-8,000 kg/ha. The terrain is mountainous and hilly, assuring good ventilation and significant temperature swings and a humid, rainy climate in the colder season.

The wine is pale straw yellow with bright greenish tints and it has numerous, fine and persistent bubbles. Intense on the nose, with delicate scents of orange and lemon flower and ripe apple. On the palate it is dry, elegant with a pleasant acidity and nice aromatic persistence.
Serving temperature: 6- 8°C.

The Benanti family, whose Sicilian roots date back to 1734, were true pioneers of Etna with Giuseppe Benanti being the first to realise the true potential for this unique volcanic region. Etna would not be what it is today, were it not for the visionary work of Giuseppe Benanti. The winery, which was set up in 1988 has, over time, sold off the lesser deemed plots of land and acquired further plots in the most prestigious slopes and Contrada. Now totalling 28 hectares, the winery only produces wines from Nerelo Mascalese, Nerelo Capuccio and Carricante.
