Crushes rocks, white peach, green almond, fennel fronds, lemon zest and blossoms. Saline, slight smokiness, very mineral. Can taste the sun but feel the elevation of the vineyard, square and structural, not plush or round or easy to understand. Sang with white pizzas

Bottle brought back from Sicily. Bit of bitterness hinting lime, lemon zest but also flavours of stone fruits. Flinty mineral reminds the volcanic soil of this region. Short finish, good food wine.

Solid Etna Bianco, 100% carricante. Quite minerally and acidic, with lots of stony notes. Well balanced and tasty.
