Insane value. Mineral core, nervy, saline.

I find myself time and again drawn to anything different that I have never tried from Sicily, especially Etna. Here we have an excellent Etna Bianco of superb quality for $25. White and yellow fruits, a tinge of salinity, and loads of minerality and freshness. High altitude, cool climate in style from just north of the equator? Say what!?! #mtetnawine #etna #volcanowine #sicily #tenutadefissina #fessina
