|Vinification||Palmento Bianco is a field blend of indigenous grapes, organically grown on the north side of Mt Etna, Sicily. The grapes were hand harvested from different vineyards during the month of September. Half the Grecanico along with the Grecanico Dorato was macerated for one week on skins. The rest of the field grapes (Catarratto, Minnella Bianco, Carricante, Insolia) were whole bunch pressed immediately into stainless steel. Alcoholic fermentation was spontaneous and without temperature control during which the two fermenting must were mixed. The finished wine underwent malolactic fermentation and remained on light lees for 5 months before it was bottled without fining or filtration. Minimum additions of S02 were made prior to bottling.
