Bianco Pomice 2021 Tenute di Castellaro
Bianco Pomice is the flagship white wine of Castellaro estates. It comes from a combination of two very different varieties, which marry perfectly and complement each other, enhanced by the volcanic soil of Lipari.
Dry white wine, of great finesse and freshness, both olfactory and on the sip: citrus and wild flowers, with fruity and almond scents, enveloping and with a long and lasting flavor.
It has sunshine and a marked brackish minerality among its deep roots. The intoxicating aromas of Malvasia delle Lipari masterfully marry 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 grapes are selected and harvested by hand, the yeasts used are indigenous ones and the clarification takes place naturally, decanting the wine several times before bottling.
