Notes from Portovino:

"From its beginning in 2007, local owner Mario Paoluzi set the groundwork to make I Custodi an Etnafuoriclasse, one of the greats, withan unwavering passion to work exclusively with the ancient albarello bush vines, some of which are 150+ years old. I Custodi’s cellar master is long-time Etna guru Salvo Foti, and his touch is one of abianchista (white wine lover) prizing elegance, tension, and keeping the pristine volcanic spice found in these wines.

‘Imbris’ is I Custodi’s long awaited Etna Bianco Superiore, produced from less than 1 ha total of Carricante vines growing at 900m altitude in Contrada Caselle, a grand cru site for Carricante."
