Quality soil acknowledgement and know how regarding the interaction between Vineyard-Land are the keys to intepret Firriato’s work in all its estates. This working conduct is much more evident in the Cavanera Etnea estate, where the winery produces Gaudensius Blanc de Blancs, spumante produced according to the classic method employing white grapes of Carricante and Chardonnay. Carricante grapes are tipycal of the Etna volcano and grow in the Cavanera Etnea estate, while Chardonnay grapes express all the hilly features of a cru growing in the Borgo Guarine estate, within the Trapani countryside, where these grapes can be used for the base wine of the Spumante just like those growing in the Champagne region.
