Piante Sparse is Italian for "stray vines" which is the story of this wine. In amongst the old red vines in the vineyards on the north slopes of Mount Etna are interspersed the occasional white grape vine. It's not known whether these were initially planted to be included in the red wine blends or to produce table grapes. However, owner Filippo Mangione has mapped these vines and in good years he harvests the grapes to produce this wine. The grapes are fermented using natural yeasts in stainless steel and the wine aged in stainless steel before bottling.
