Benanti Pietra Marina Etna Bianco Superiore Carricante 2015

$65

Benanti is now synonymous with Mount Etna and stands out as one of the first and finest producers to start making world class wines on the slopes of the volcano.andnbsp; Pietra Marina, made from the indigenous grape Carricante, is regarded as one of Italy's greatest white wines, something we could not agree with more. It performs exceedingly well in the cellar, really shining with 5 andndash; 10 years of age from the vintage. The name of this cuvandeacute;e has always been meant to invoke the dual natural of great Etna Biancos, influenced by the mountain ( Pietra ) and the sea ( Marina ) simultaneously. Ripe fruit is impeccably balanced against saline minerality and citrusy cut with a sneaky tactile density for its modest 12.5% alcohol.andnbsp; With time open herbal notes of thyme and sage will emerge without the loss of fresh fruit or focus.

I’m always impressed by Pietramarina and the 15 is no different!

Really nice with some mellow acidity and good minerality. But a lot more body and complexity than like a Greco do tufo. Seafood pasta is a perfect pair here
