Ratings and Reviews

The 2015 Etna Bianco Superiore Pietra Marina (100% Carricante) is just so lovely. The wine is ethereal, light and delicate. On first nose, you get precise aromas of white peach, zesty pear and blanched almond. As the wine fleshes out and takes on more volume in the glass, it displays a beautiful array of mineral nuances. Those salty flinty notes will continue to evolve over the next ten years. It ages on the fine lees for 24 months in steel vats. Some 9,000 bottles were produced.

Luminous straw yellow. Offers an enticing mix of lemon, honey and herbs on the nose. Then very mineral too, with laser-like cut and clarity on the long, stony finish. This ought to develop nicely. Made with Carricante on the eastern slopes of Etna, that are by far the best for this grape variety.
