Manzoni Bianco

Labrusca Emilia Lambrusco Bianco

8.9

Didn’t quite know what to expect but this was akin to dry Prosecco w/some yeasty bready undertones. Elegant & business-like w/zippy acidity and angular frame. Despite the label, this is not a whimsical wine… we enjoyed as aperitif — 3 days ago

Terra Alpina Dolomiti Pinot Bianco 2018

Lemon, lime, quince, lemon grass, a hint of French oak, and loads of mineral notes. Low alcohol and high acid. Perfect match for lemon sauce based seafood dishes. — 11 days ago

Bianco Centennial Mountain Carricante 2017

Sicilian variety filtered thru the lens of Rhys in CA. Particularly like the saline mineral notes over citrus and white fruit. Excellent stuff and worth seeking out. Compares well to their Sicilian Carricante. — 12 days ago

Toscana Bianco 2018

Kind of a missed opportunity. Encouraging but falls flat fast, like a mass-produced rosé. Consistent notes with first bottle. — 22 days ago

Etna Bianco DOC Carricante 2018

Comparing two Etna whites in the shadow of the great mountain itself.
This is expressive & highly aromatic with ripe white peach & (over)ripe melon with some oaky notes (that mellow down with time in the glass). There’s some green walnut here as well. Deep underneath there’s the salty volcanic minerality, but it doesn’t come first.
On the palate this is at first surprisingly lean, then it broadens with the oak aromas and the spicy minerality showing in full. The sweet stone fruit fills the background.
This needs quite a bit of time to breathe & to come together... and then it really shows it’s potential & character.
Edit 24h later: this has really come together, showing biw some nice matchstick reduction and showing quite some depth. Not unlike a good Côte Chalonnais!
Great with food, not lacking solo, either. A very nice effort by Planeta.

Gamma Etna Bianco Carricante 2018

Delectable Wine
9.1

Dusty yellow flowers, smoke, crushed stone, nectarine and hints of hazelnut lift up from the 2018 Etna Bianco Gamma, creating a deeply alluring display. It’s soft and textural, balancing ripe orchard fruits against hints of sour green citrus and salty mineral tones. Notes of young mango and peach linger, along with a subtle buzz of residual acidity, all under a pretty air of inner florals. This highly enjoyable Carricante is showing beautifully already, but it should also excel for a number of years in a cold cellar. (Eric Guido, Vinous, June 2021)
