Despite the gripe about the hype, this really is a special white that has tons of volcanic character paired with fruit - aromas and flavors of white peach, apricot, passion fruit, smoke, stoniness and salinity, and lemon peel. Rounded texture with medium plus acid, it lingers on the finish with yellow stone fruit and a hint of menthol.

Continues to be my favorite Etna-golden yellow in color, round and deep, but with rich minerality and medium high acid: white peach, apricot, yellow ripe pear, daisies, honey, mead, crushed ash...and buffalo mozzarella!

White Burgundy clone from the slopes of Mt. Etna. Rich and very pleasant finish that lasts 2 min +.

Much richer and more expressive than expected. Deep poached pear, custard and mineral action - believe it or not.

Good way to start the Etna adventure. Luxurious mouthfeel and deeply satisfying.

A great Etna producer. This Bianco is crisp, with loads of mineral, sea salt, and green apple (the small Sicilian variety).
