This white wine is produced in the municipalities surrounding the Mount Etna volcano (Catania). More specifically, the Northern side of the volcano, near the town of Randazzo, is the most rainy, where the vine less suffers the summer heat, and it produces persistent and spicy wines, with a limited alcohol content. This wine is produced with two indigenous vines, grown only in Sicily: Carricante and Grecanico.

Carricante gives the wine light and fine aromas with flowery hints. Grecanico, imported to Sicily by ancient Greeks, is an important component of many Sicilian dry white wines, especially for certain aromatic affinities with Sauvignon.
