Tifeo Bianco

Tifeo Bianco

A crisp, fresh, white wine, Tifeo Bianco presents in a pale straw color with golden hues. Full and persuasive to the nose, this refreshing white wine is packed with the perfumed aroma of yellow flowers (think daisies, broom, and mimosa) with the subtle undertones of lemon.

You can effortlessly pair this versatile white wine with a wide range of foods. From tasty Sicilian cheeses to fresh seafood and shellfish.

 

Tifeo Bianco

A blend of Carricante and Cataratto grapes grown in the volcanic soil of Mt. Etna.  Aged 5 months in stainless steel and offers a brilliant bouquet that gives way to a pleasant minerality with a subtle hint of salinity. 

More About This Wine

The grapes of Mt. Etna are grown with love and care by the Gambino family. The unique environment of this of this active volcano in Sicily is commonly referred to as the “island within an island.” While grapes don’t grow easily in extreme volcanic conditions, when harvested with care, they create an incredible wine meant to be savored.


Carricante is a white wine grape indigenous to Sicily. Thought to have been growing on the volcanic slopes of Mount Etna for over a thousand years, Carricante grapes are one of the more widely known white grapes of the Mt. Etna region.


Initially used by locals to refer to loading up their cart (or donkey), the word ‘Carricante’ has come to represent one of Sicily’s most widely produced grapes. In fact, when left to grow in the wild, this variety is known for producing massive amounts of grapes. A crisp acidity, with subtle floral white peach undertones, it’s the ideal grape for producing extraordinary white wine.


Native to the Mt. Etna region, Catarratto grapes are smaller in size, but they produce wine with moderate alcohol and higher acidity. The perfect grape to blend in with other grapes, Catarratto grapes were traditionally favored for providing the quantity needed for Marsala wine production.

 

Tifeo - Half human and half dragon, Tifeo was a divine creature in Greek mythology. His wings lay between Messina and Syracuse, his tail underneath Naples, and his heart beats under Mount Etna. Tifeo was thought to have temporarily disabled the Greek God Zeus, who was later rescued by his son Hermes.
