  TYPE: Carricante, Catarratto and others

  SUB WINE-REGION:  Santa Venerina (CT)


20 years after the first production of Murgo Etna we have created a new white wine made with innovative criteria. The careful selection of grapes from the best games of the San Michele vineyard brings a better balance in its components, enhancing the mineral, the magnitude and persistence. The partial aging in oak with blonde roasting preserves the aroma of the wine, giving more complexity and balance.

In 1981 Baron Emanuele Scammacca Murgo decided to turn the old estates of the family in modern farms. In subsequent years they join him sons Michael, Peter, Matthew, supported by brothers Philip, Alexander, Bernardo, Manfredi and Constantine. Currently the vineyards are located at the three estates: San Michele (Santa Venerina), Gelso Bianco (Catania) and the Franciscan (Aprilia). In 1982 is bottled the first Etna Rosso and later, in 1990, the first sparkling Brut Murgo. The vineyards now have a territory of 30 hectares and is mostly dedicated to the production of Etna DOC wines.
