Passobianco by Passopisciaro is a white wine from Etna produced by Franchetti in its cellar in Castiglione di Sicilia. Not the usual Etna white obtained from native Carricante grapes but a pure Chardonnay, wanted by Andrea Franchetti, one of the first producers to believe in the extraordinary lava terroir of Etna. Produced for the first time in 2007, Passobianco is a rich, fresh and complex wine with great aging potential, typical of Burgundy whites.
