The 2020 Etna Bianco Nerina takes things to a very serious level, with a white Burg-like bouquet of crushed oyster shells mixed with yellow apple, dusty dried flowers and hints of brown spice. Its silky, nearly-glycerol textures find balance through a core of saline-infused minerals and brisk acids, as nectarine mixes with bitter lemon pith to create further tension. This leaves the palate with a saturation of primary concentration, yet it maintains amazing freshness through the long and lightly structured finale. The balance of richness, structure and fruit here promises many years of positive evolution. It’s amazing to think that this is the “entry-level” Bianco from Girolamo Russo.
