The 80 year-old vines that produce this beautiful Carricante Etna Bianco Superiore “Pietramarina” grow on the eastern slope of Etna in the comune of Milo. Only the Etna Bianco produced in this region may be given the title of Superiore. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks and the wine is left to mature for 2 years before bottling and further refinement in bottle for 10-12 months.
Carricante Etna Bianco Superiore “Pietramarina” by Benanti has pale yellow colour. It displays delightful complexity on the nose and palate with aromas ripe citrus and a touch of tropical but with more intricate hints of lemongrass, orange blossom, and an almond nuttiness with a final twist of star anise. Gorgeous acidity with a lovely, long, moreish finish.
Best to be enjoyed with
