Vintage 2019 | from the rather obscure carricante grape, what an effort! Floral smell, seabreeze! Nice bitters. Bought some for cellaring. — 8 days ago

Pietra Marina Etna Bianco Superiore Carricante 2018

Delectable Wine

The 2018 Etna Bianco Superiore Pietra Marina captivates with a savory blend of crushed rocks, raw almonds and musky dried apricot. It's deeply textural with a saline tinge to its orchard fruits and brisk acidity that maintains energy throughout. The 2018 leaves a lemon and mineral twang through the long, lightly structured finale as hints of liquid stone linger. The PietraMarina is currently wrapped up tight with youthful poise, yet it should blossom beautifully in a few years. (Eric Guido, Vinous, September 2023)

Etna Bianco Carricante 2021

100% Carricante. Pale gold color with greenish highlights. Aromas of apple, lemon and white flowers with a hint of smoke. Palate notes peach, lemon and minerals. A bit of saline and smoke on the finish. Bright and well balanced but still quite delicate. Thanks to Ron B! — a month ago

Gamma Etna Bianco Carricante 2020

Delectable Wine

The 2020 Etna Bianco Gamma is more savory than sweet, with a mineral-inflected blend of crushed rocks, young peach and lemon oil. It's round yet takes on a crunchy feel. Tart orchard fruits and citrus tones collide over a core of zesty acidity. This leaves a tropical floral flourish along with saline minerals as the mouth is left watering and nectarine hints slowly fade. (Eric Guido, Vinous, September 2023)
