The vines for the Terrazze del Vulcano Ciuri white wine have an age of 10 to 30 years and grow in the volcanic soil in Terrazze dell'Etna’s vineyards on the northwestern slopes of Mount Etna near Randazzo at an altitude of 650-950 m.
The grapes were manually harvested, sorted, and destemmed. Following cooling of the grapes and a soft pressing the grape juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature. After the fermentation the wine was matured for a short period in steel tanks and then in the bottle.
