Etna Bianco 2019
  • Vintage : 2019
  • Country : Italy
  • Region : Sicily
  • Subregion
  • Type : White
  • Style Crisp Dry White
  • Format : 75cl
  • Alcohol : 12,5°
  • Grappes : 100% Carricante

Tasting Note: Vibrant Sicilian white wine from volcanic soil, rounded, fruity and perfumed with yellow plums, white stone fruit and herbs.

Food Matching: A white wine for all seasons. Good as an aperitif, but excellent with starters based on fish and pasta.

Vinification: The grapes are picked into crates and are at once refrigerated at 8°C. After light crushing and destemming they are soft pressed. The decanted must is racked and inoculated with yeasts then ferments at 15°C for 20 days. The wine thus obtained remains on the lees until February with continuous mixing. 10% of the must is fermented in barriques. The wine is then matured in stainless steel tanks and Allier oak 225 litre barriques.

Robert Parker (RP) : 93 Points (2019)
Here's a cheerful wine to love and enjoy. The 2019 Etna Bianco presents a zesty range of Carricante-specific aromas that start off with tropical fruits and peachy sweetness and then veer toward crushed stone and mineral. This is a lean-bodied white with plenty of refreshing acidity and crispness. This bottle is a joy to drink, preferably with some stuffed clams.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 92 Points (2018)
Elegant and savory, this linear white offers delicate scents of spring blossom and yellow stone fruit along with a whiff of citrus. The crisp palate boasts tension and energy, offering yellow pear, apricot, Meyer lemon and tangy mineral notes of saline alongside racy acidity.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 90 Points (2018)
This lithe, light-bodied white offers notes of pineapple and tangerine fruit, with hints of lemon curd and biscotti backed by crackling acidity. The minerally underpinning shows on the finish, with a clean-cut mix of saline and chalk. Drink now through 2026. 10,000 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.

Decanter (DCT) : 93 Points (2017)
I love this fresh, modern take on an Etna white wine, with its controlled and precise nose of honey hints, white flowers and ripe limes. The palate is invigorating, juicy and lively. Full and rich but bursting with tangy, lime-juicy brightness. Vivacious and delicious.

James Suckling (JS) : 93 Points (2016)
A beautiful white with sliced apple and lemon rind character. Salty, too! Full body, plenty of fruit and a oily yet fresh finish. (10/2017)

The history of Etna is studded with the historic eruptions which have shaped it. The legendary one of 1614, lasting ten years and the longest ever recorded, halted right on the border of the vineyards of Sciaranuova. A strongly evocative name for our Cru dell’Etna based on Nerello Mascalese. High black lands confer an elegant style, refined and balanced.

A rare and exclusive grape variety cultivated on only a few hectares, it is best expressed in the red sands of Vittoria, not far from the sea. An aromatic and pleasant red wine as few others, a perfect synthesis between tradition and innovation.
