The best white wines from volcanoes

Volcanic territories, even if they represent a small percentage of the surface of the emerged lands, are often places where viticulture has always found a home. The soils of stones, sands and lapilli, scarce of organic matter, but very rich in mineral substances, have always proved to be perfect for the vine. If we think of Italy, the thought immediately runs to the main volcanoes of Etna, the Aeolian islands and Vesuvius, but there are many other territories of our peninsula rich in soils of ancient volcanic origin, even if for millennia without eruptive activity . Just think of the basaltic area of Soave and Gambellara, the tuffs of the Tuscia region, the ferrous rocks of the Gattinara area, the ancient Vùlture volcano. All areas in which the wines acquire, thanks to the particular soil and climatic conditions, finesse, elegance and particular notes generically called "minerals" that can be expressed in sapid, smoky, flint or even hydrocarbon sensations, which make the bouquet fascinating and unmistakable. We have chosen a selection of the most representative whites of this particular type of wine, which will amaze you with their original personality and character.

Classic Method Extra-Brut Millesimato of Murgo

Let's start with a surprising Classic Method, produced with pure mascalese nerello vinified in white. The bouquet recalls the notes of broom and orange blossom flowers, with delicate fruity aromas and toasted sensations. The sip is fresh, deep and savory.

Etna Bianco DOC Pietrarizzo di Tornatore

This fresh and intense white comes from carricante and catarratto vineyards, cultivated on the north side of Etna, with fresh citrus notes and ripe hints of exotic fruit.

Etna Bianco DOC Ante of I Custodi delle Vigne dell'Etna

A blend of carricante, minnella and grecanico for a tense and vibrant white, with citrus aromas enhanced by hints of anise, spices and smoky flavors.

Lacryma Christi Bianco DOC by Feudi di San Gregorio

The foxtail and falanghina vineyards, grown on the slopes of volcanic ash from Vesuvius, offer a white with fresh notes of citrus peel, white fruit, saline and mineral sip.

Soave Classico DOC Calvarino di Pieropan

The famous Calvarino di PIeropan was born from the homonymous vineyard cultivated in the heart of the Soave Classic area. A white that conquers for the elegance of its floral and citrus scents, with a fresh, sapid and slightly almondy finish.

Soave Classico DOC Ca 'Visco di Coffele

From the vineyards cultivated in the famous Castelcerino cru, Coffele produces an impeccable Soave for its typical variety and loyalty to the territory. The fresh notes of elderberry and cedar open to ripe tropical scents, crossed by a clear sapid-mineral vein.

Soave DOC Vigne della Brà di Filippi

From a historic vineyard in Castelcerino, Filippi produces a Soave with a distinct personality. Sapid, mineral, frank and direct, with beautiful floral and fruity notes.
