Pietra Marina Etna Bianco Superiore Carricante 2010

9.0

Saline, salt and brine. Maybe some yellow fruit and white flowers, but mostly the sea. For my palate, it could use a little more acid to brighten the whole package, but then again, I tend to be on the far end of that spectrum so YMMV. Sure is tasty along side some crudo, tho. — a day ago

Acidity varies considerably across vintages, so you might appreciate the cooler years more. The crudo pairing is indeed the bomb!

Etna Bianco Carricante 2013

Needs 30 minutes to open up - lots of funk at first. A beautiful 100% carricante Etna white - floral and intensely saline. Honeysuckle and dried flowers. Slightly oily texture. The only thing I don’t like is a touch of vanilla at the end - seems like it must be oaked. — 21 days ago

Solid Etna Bianco. Mouth filling with extreme minerality and great acidity. Love this sort of stuff. — 3 days ago

Murgo

Etna Bianco Carricante Catarratto

70% carricante and 40% catarrotto. High acid, straw yellow, floral nose, honeysuckle and bright citrus palate, flinty minerality, a touch of oiliness and salinity. Very nice food wine (though I prefer the 100% carricante Etna whites) — 21 days ago

I Vigneri di Salvo Foti

Aurora Carricante 2016

Almost Chablis-like, bursting with minerals, a tad smokey with notes of lemon curd, quince and a bit of chamomile — 3 days ago

Vigna di Milo Caselle Carricante 2015

An element of honeyed richness that imparts weight and differentiates it from the aurora. I love these i vignieri wines. This killed with clam pie — 9 days ago
