The elegant bouquet is a combination of peach, apple, citrus fruits and blossom.


The palate has a big-structure, with excellent acidity, minerality and sapidity and these characteristics give Carricante a particularly long finish.

Growing Conditions

Nostru Carricante has grown breathing the air of Ragusa’s countryside, which surrounds the beautiful baroque city. Our Nostru Carricante grows at an altitude of approximately 400 metres above sea level. In this white wine, we find a meeting of our Trentino origins and our love for Sicily: an elegance that combines floral and mineral notes, with citrus nuances that remind us of Riesling.

Azienda Agricola Cortese is Sicilian biodiversity: like all of our wines, Carricante is organic and vegan, produced with the maximum respect for and protection of the environment.


Grapes are hand-picked.


De-stemmed and very softly pressed with a pneumatic press. The must is decanted at low temperature for about 48 hours before staring the fermentation, which
is carried out at 17-19C° for about 20 days. When the fermentation is finished the wine is racked and kept on fine lees for at least
5 months, with frequent battonages.


Our Carricante has a pale straw yellow, with some hints of green.

Food Pairing

Nostru Carricante is the perfect accompaniment to a seafood menu: seafood antipasti, then crab linguine, followed by grilled fish.
