Aroma and elegance crossed by a subtle but perceptible and savoury salty texture that makes it unique.
An aroma that unleash a great balance.
It was 2008 when we realesed the first vintage of our reference white wine and nothing has been the same again. Bianco Pomice is our flagship white wine. It was born from a combination of two very different varieties, which blend perfectly and complement each other, enhanced by the volcanic soil of Lipari.
Dry white wine, it has a great finesse and delicacy, both olfactory and sip: we can find notes of citrus and wild flowers, with fruity and almond hints. It is enveloping and it has a long and lasting taste.
The wine has the sun and a strong brackish minerality inside its deep roots. The heady aromas of Malvasia delle Lipari blend masterfully with the fresh mineral caress of Carricante to create a taste where the concept of balance becomes the archetype of a complex Sicilian elegance ready to conquer the world.
The grape is selected and picked manually, the yeast are the indigenous ones and the clarification takes place naturally, by racking the wine several times before bottling.
It is almost boring to report that even this year we are facing a masterpiece.
SLOW WINE October 2016
I always look forward to tasting this wine because it never fails to offer an unmistakable signature of the white volcanic stones that mark this special territory. You can smell the sulfur rock and the crushed pumice stone.
Monica Larner WINE ADVOCATE October 2019
It delivers good intensity without being weight and displays lovely mineral-acid balance finishing with enticing, lingering perfume and noteworthy complexity.
Ian D'Agata VINOUS October 2016
This has fabulous depth and density and yet remains so fresh and refreshing with a long, stony but also crisply citrus finish, even a hint of orange pith on the finish and the merest suggestion of grainy texture like fresh pears.
Julia Harding JANCIS ROBINSON July 2018
Robe jaune d’or brillante; fruité et floral au nez, notes d’agrumes, de garrigue, d’amande amère; élégant et juteux en bouche, la structure de la Malvasia s’allie à l’élégance du Carricante, finale minérale et salée.
Christian Eder VINUM November 2018
Light gold. Intensely territorial olfactory profile with brackish and chalky fumes accompanied by medlar and cedar, orange blossom, sweet almond, mallow and white pepper. Exuberant freshness and glycerine notes create a good balance that is overwhelmed by a savory wave that guides the long and coherent pleasantly almond-shaped fruity echoes.
BIBENDA October 2018
An aroma that contains all the colours of the Aeolian Islands, an elegant sip capable of drawing an incredible landscape.
The Obsidian, the volcanic stone par excellence, gives its name to this wine with salty scents and spicy tones: the history of Lipari in a glass
It is crystalline like the white beaches of Lipari, in the mouth it is fresh with salt and sun
L'Ottava Isola is sun and snow, volcanic heat and freshness of mountain where the lava makes the land fertile and rich in minerals.
