Dedicated to the history and nature of Lipari, it recalls the famous Porticello beach with its pier, where the workers of the Pumice Quarries carried the loads to be embarked on the ships.
A dry white wine, with a straw yellow color with bright green reflections, which comes from the combination of the liveliness of Carricante and the aromaticity of Moscato Bianco and Malvasia delle Lipari. The scent is herbaceous and the fruity notes, with hints of apple, make it fresh and balanced.
Pure saltiness: it is dedicated to one of the most famous beaches of Lipari, Bianco Porticello is the wine that restores to the eyes and the palate the suggestions of saltiness that shines on the skin bathed by the sea in the light of the sun's reflections.
Direct pressing of the grapes in a pneumatic press and no clarification of the musts.
"It has aromas that range from herbaceous and iodine hints to floral and fruity sensations. To the taste, the progression is rhythmic and led by a continuous flavor"
WINENEWS September 2018
"Plenty of crunchy fresh citrus and green fruit and a mouth-watering finish and really salty.
It would be so easy to keep drinking this, especially on a hot day – either on its own or with plain fish dishes"

If you are a lover of crisp and tonic Italian whites, I absolutely recommend this excellent value wine. I just love it.
Monica Larner WINE ADVOCATE December 2018
Jaune d’or aux reflets verts; bouquet fruité et herbacé aux notes de pomme; frais en attaque, compact, doté d’une vive acidité bien intégrée et d’une finale minérale. De la finesse et un beau potentiel d’évolution.
Christian Eder VINUM November 2018
Softly perfumed, spicy white fruit with notes of lemon peel. Citric vein running all the way through on the palate. Lovely viscosity and yet only 12%. Fine texture and long finish.
Walter Speller JANCIS ROBINSON November 2017
It is a wine sharpened with lime and orange peel, sage mint and lantana, juicy mouth with aromatic substance mustard and final drenched in salt and sun.
Andrea Gori INTRAVINO September 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.
