Benanti Etna Bianco Carricante 2016

$26.99

100% Carricante from high altitude albarello (andldquo;little treeandrdquo;) trained vines. Powerful and racy with hints of white flowers and honeydew melon all with a mouth-watering saline finish. Carricante is indigenous to Etna and this is a perfect wine to get acquainted with this noble varietal.

Fond of these wines, although this bottling is becoming rather expensive. Not much complexity.

Austere and stony/volcanic, with a citrusy acidity. Pairs well with light seafood.

Sea breeze and volcanic rock. 100% carricante, medium acid, beautiful salinity, minimal fruit but a lot of wet rock. Perfect shellfish wine.

Detergent, pineapple and apple on the nose. Brisk acidity, minerality, and saline on the palette. Medium finish. Light to medium body and very distinctive.

Lovely white wine, with a white fruit fresh nose, and a tropical fruit palette that finishes in lemon. A slight saltiness toward the finish. A great find.
