The heatwaves that hit the mainland of Italy also came to Etna. With no drops in temperature that usually brighten the nights, the long, hot summer brought about quite advanced maturation of the Chardonnay grapes. We had to add a little water to the vines to help them through. We picked almost a month earlier than usual, from the 13th to the 30th of August. A rich and lush body signal the heat of the vintage, yet it is brightened by its characteristic minerality and acidity.

The 2017 Passobianco shows a pretty straw-gold color with aromas of Golden Delicious apple, honey and a touch of sweetly toasted almond. This is a mid-weight wine that remains light and balanced on the palate thanks to those distinctive background notes of volcanic ash and sea salt. This is an extremely Mediterranean expression of Chardonnay. Some 25,000 bottles were released.
