I don't drink from Sicily often. Bit of an acidic bite. Spicy and the volcanic mineral quality is definitely present. Livened up a meal home in quarantine a few nights ago. Not too stiff, opened up fine after an hour. Red fruit with a nice finish. — 7 months ago
Library book bordeaux nose. Still super fresh red fruit palate. Lovely balance. Full of flavour but light on its feet. — 6 months ago
Light with a minerally, volcanic finish. Dad likes it. — 6 years ago
Last bottle, and damn it's drinking fine! No new notes today, but I must identify that the waxy notes and acidity are transcendent...This bottle still has years. 🥲
Nose has dried grapefruit rind, honeydew melon, dry sage, fresh rosemary and beeswax.
Palate has ripe honeydew melon, dried lemon, lemon juice, acidic pear, orange rind with plenty of dry minerals and acidity for days. Wonderful. — 6 months ago
Etna Bianco comparative study. Carricante - the motherlode of Etna whites, and Benanti is benchmark goods. Pietramarina is single-vineyard fruit hailing from Milo (same as Fessina). A great wine that everyone who loves the legendary whites of Burgundy, Mosel and the Wachau should add to their list of hits. — 7 years ago
