Nice little bit of funk, faintest flinty hit. It’s a funk that I see with wines with this kind of acid profile. Excellent juicy acid with line and length. Depth and persistence. Mineral with excellent citrus grapefruit and pith backed by a lovely core of fruit. Excellent transparency to this. So crisp and refreshing. Loads of energy. Delightful.
Carricante 90%, Catarratto, Minnella 10%
A lovely Etna Bianco that mercifully doesn’t taste of Chardonnay or other varieties that have no place on Etna. A steal for the price. Harmonious, lively aromas and flavours of white stone fruit and aromatic herbs. Bright and juicy, with a refreshing saline bite on the long smooth finish. Remarkably fresh and easy to drink. This is a steal for the price.
Co-planted in a red vineyard pickers walk vine to vine searching for white grapes! 70% Carricante with a mix of other natives! Elegant & fine, lovely acid profile long even salty, good zip length, quite complete for a just released almost chalky. Sophisticated. Musk on white stonefruit with white flowers. Lovely flow. Tasty now, give it a couple of years to fully resolve and this will be a ripper.
More than 70% Carricante with the rest being Inzolia, Coda di Volpe and Catarratto , harv
