Golden with aromas of stone fruit, citrus and nutty spice notes. On the palate pear and lemon flavors with notes of toasty sweet vanilla. Good acidity balance and structure, lingering finish ending with mineral character. Very Nice!

Slightly underripe nectarine, fresh herbs, clover honey, lime and wet stones. Nice structure and acidity. I'm going to have to seek out more Etna Bianco.

Drank in Sicily. Light bodied, sweet citrus. Great once it opened.

Refreshing and nice body. I like the saline minerality and grapefruit flavors, but a bit bitter.

Quaffable. Under ripe apricot, crisp stone fruits, and pure Etna minerality.
