It's the main character of Etna's wine renaissance, a terroir able to give minerality and elegance to the wine. Carricante is an indigenous Sicilian white grape variety used to produce the Etna Bianco D.O.C. (60%) and Etna Bianco Superiore D.O.C. (80%). It has been grown since ancient times on the sandy side of the volcano, so the wines will be characterised by minerals and ash flavours. However, this terroir is also exposes to the sea, which give freshness to the wine.

Both wines have been produced with a special consideration for quality, from vineyard to the wine cellar


"GORNA," Boniviri's Etna Bianco D.O.C produced by the Eudes winery, is capable of express the full potential of Carricante. The wine is elegant, deeply mineral, with good acidity and a rich bouquet of aromas such as apple, orange blossom and anise. A wine that can be aged in steel to enhance its freshness, but also with good structure.
The work of brave and visionary winemakers such as Giovanni Messina - owner of the Eudes winery - has transformed this grape variety. The word Carricante derives from the Sicilian dialect "u carricanti," standing for "abundant production" because usually winemakers could get a lot of grapes of this variety. However, i't's not always about quantity but also about quality. Over the years Giovanni had to take care of the aromatic concentration inside the grapes in order to guarantee a good product for his clients, and this requires a lot of work.

The story of Caricante is the story of a collective, gentle, brave revolution.  Yet, no less explosive than the volcano that hosts it. A revolution that here at Boniviri, with our sustainable agriculture project, we are proud to support.  After all, for us nothing is more important than giving value to small, excellent companies like Eudes that, every day, work with passion, courage and determination.
