Minnella 100%, grown as alberello (free standing bush). Minnella, is an indigenous white grape variety cultivated only on Etna and it has always been consociated with Nerello Mascalese and/or Carricante. The name Minnella (“Minnedda janca”), was given by the vine growers of Etna because of the shape of the grape, similar to a “minna” which in Sicilian means breast. There is no historical notes about the origin of this grape variety. The grapes ripen at the second and third week of September, earlier than Carricante (first and second week of October).
