Cavanera Ripa di Scorciavacca is an Etna DOC from the Firriato cellars.
An arostic, elegant white wine with an intense bouquet, it is suitable for dishes with an equally high level of refinement. Some examples: trout mousse with caviar, asparagus in hollandaise sauce, chicken liver terrine, potato gnocchi with herbs. It is also perfect for enhancing the flavour of goat cheeses served with oil, pepper and herbs.
The personality of Cavanera Ripa di Scorciavacca derives from a complex and unique terroir in the Sicilian viticultural context, that of Etna.
It has an intense straw yellow colour with green reflections. On the nose, this Cavanera Firriato suggests an enchanting intensity and offers crisp evolutions of its scents, from wild yellow flowers, such as broom and acacia, to the white flesh of apple and ripe peach. Finally, it reveals aromatic herbs and seaweed. An elegant, full-bodied wine, Cavanera Ripa di Scorciavacca enjoys a stylistic rigour that is distinguished by its power and roundness. Its imposing structure makes it an archetypal wine of the volcano.
Best served at a temperature between 12 and 14 °C, Cavanera Ripa di Scorciavacca Firriato is an expression of the perfect union between Carricante and Cataratto.
