One of Sicily’s oldest and finest wineries, producing top quality, indigenous varietal wines from Vittoria. In perfect harmony with nature and with ideal grape-growing weather conditions, Feudo di Santa Tresa’s vineyards benefit from the Sicilian sun and cooling sea breezes, far enough away from the sea. Here, we are able to produce organic wines with the ultimate expression of our grape varietals and the soul of Sicilian character. Considerable replanting and upgrading on the 50 hectares “terra rossa” vineyards, alongside the highest quality winemaking, results in exceptional wines.
This Carricante is a pale straw yellow in colour, with some hints of green. The elegant bouquet is a combination of peach, apple, citrus fruits and blossom. The palate has a big structure, with excellent acidity, minerality and sapidity and these characteristics give Carricante a particularly long finish.
Try as an aperitif or, with light summer dishes.
"This has lovely intensity, with apricot and pear fruit and a limey edge. It’s quite bold, but fruit is the driver, with an undercurrent of stony, grainy, lemon-acid structure. Zippy, but with a touch of richness. It’s not a million miles away from Albariño and it has quite a mineral core to it. 90/100" - Wine Anorak, 2020.
