Carricante Yay! Wacky wine here! Nuts, salinity, herbs, smoke, mineral, peach pith...lots of very mind bending nuances going at once! Try it nerds, you'll like it!!!

Driven by it's minerality. Pre-phylloxera vineyard at 850m, high up on mount Etna. Textured wine with a feeling of salt & (volcanic) stones. And acids! Nice find.

Mouth watering saline. Almost a chalky dryness. Great acidity and tons of minerality. A fun wine!

Amazing wine from the Etna DOC in Sicilia shows incredible acid structure and purity of fruit and a depth of concentration rarely seen in Italian whites.

Hard to pinpoint fruit on this. There is a funk that I can't mail down either. Let's call it funk. Vanilla right off the bat.

Super smooth, bright fruit, baldness acidity and nice, round tannins. Kind of a bitter finish.
