Brilliant Etna Bianco. Really feeling carricante these days. This one especially. Very coastal but with a core of fleshy richness

With Sashi and Raj in Rome. Delicious with mullet/turmeric soup and cauliflower/poached egg. How can a wine have round edges and straight lines at the same time?

Mineral and salinity at the core of this mountain-grown wine; wrapped in a richness that is reminiscent of the lees treatment seen in burgundy but less predictable. There's a ton of other happenings here too - floral, tropical, lychee, pear, citron marmalade- but it's all subtle and integrated. Some of sicily's best at this price. Paired great with some salmon and pesto with hash!

Bright acidity and drenching salinity, with lots of Meyer lemon, thyme and hints of bruised apples. Paired lovely with pappardelle & summer squash sauce.

Mango skins, bright vanilla, graham cracker, white tea, fresh sea air. Texture for days and a very fresh, vibrant finish. Must buy more. I really, really like this wine. A lot.
