Love the reds. Meh about this. Lots of oak.

Have loved this producer in the past but the 2014 was disappointing! (this was a 'search' picture.) Dull bubblegum with some campfire and maybe a little lime - fun restaurant though!

Fine example of how you make a lovely white wine in volcanic soils and a warm climate.

Fresh with hint of grapefruit. Floral first and then nice finish with body - complex but very good

Lemon, melon, apple, minerals and creaminess. Bright acidity. Medium-light in body. Very pleasant to drink. Would buy again.

Lovely and easy to drink! Bright soft fruit - orange blossom, Meier lemon - and flowers. Sweet essence but a dry wine. Perfect with Pollo Amalfitano with lemon and thyme on a lovely spring evening. #carricante #italy #sicilia #etnabianco #etna

Very fascinating wine! Honey comb, blossoms, stone fruits, hints of tarragon and citrus. Rich and voluminous texture. Honey, minerals and herbs.

Ett fantastiskt fruktigt vin med smak bland annat av mango och mandarin!

Had higher expectations. The word "gray" came to mind. Didn't have the zippy racy acidity and fun minerality I've had in most carricante. Didn't realize before buying that it was a blend. Wouldn't buy again but would like to try their straight carricante.
