Tornatore Etna Bianco 2020
The Etna Bianco is born from the skillful vinification of the white grape vines Carricante, cultivated in volcanic soils with a high vocation and arranged in terraces at an altitude of 650 meters above sea level, in the northern slope of the volcano. Straw yellow colored wine with light green shadow that offers mineral notes with menthol scents typical of high wines, green apple with primary aromas characteristic of the variety.
This radiant, savory white proves why Etna is so hot right now. It opens with heady aromas of spring blossom, Mediterranean brush and wild herb while the bright, delicious palate delivers Meyer lemon, yellow pear and apple alongside a tangy, saline note. It's supremely elegant and energized thanks to bright acidity.
The Tornatore 2020 Etna Bianco is a pure expression of Carricante made only in stainless steel. Production for this wine is an ample 60,000 bottles. This Bianco is thin and crisp, with enough inner tension and brightness to frame its aromas of citrus, honeydew melon and wild sage. The simple and stripped-down approach is perfect for a platter of tomato and basil bruschetta out on the patio.
