Contrada Monte Gorna Etna Bianco Carricante 2020

Bright gold. Somewhat shy nose of yellow apple, honey, and stone. Medium palate echoes the nose adding dried flowers and baked pineapple and enhancing the stony mineral note. Medium plus acidity cuts through as the palate gains complexity with air time. Lengthy (12+ seconds) finish continues the palate. 12 months of barrel age adds depth to the volcanic mineral streak in this classic Etna white. Drink with heartier Mediterranean white wine fare -- richer seafood or roasted pork dishes -- now through 2027. — 9 months ago

Graves White Bordeaux Blend 2022

19.09.23 Trip to Nicosia, fixing me and fixing my car. Toast to my car, so that it survives the end of the world.
The wine makes people talk, I didn't see how the bottle got empty... Perfectly well-balanced and aromatic wine from Graves.
12,5%, 50% Sauvignon and 50% Sémillon.

Contrada Monte Gorna Etna Bianco White Blend 2020

Lime, pear and citrus aroma. Nicely balanced mineral crisp finish. Went well with a mildly spiced shrimp chili spiced rice dish. — 2 years ago

Vulka Etna Rosso Nerello Blend 2016

Good fruit, a little brambly, a little bit of a short finish and could be drier. Not as mineral or tannic as I usually like from Etna Rosso. From Town Center Wines, Eastham. — 4 years ago

Lenza di Munti Etna Rosso Red Blend 2018

Truncated notes because I had this and wrote it up about 10 months ago, but it’s still super fresh and flavorful and vigorous, in an undemanding way. Great value and very good flexible. — a year ago

Gonrada Monte Gorna Etna Bianco Carricante Catarratto 2020

Lot of bang for the buck here. Nose is super fresh. Great notes of straw, greengage plum, zesty apple, and — of course — flinty volcanic minerality. In the mouth it’s nicely balanced, soft on entry with acids sneaking up in the latter half of the palate. Dry and quite minerally. — 2 years ago
