Pietradolce Etna Bianco 2019
Made from young Carricante vines grown 800m up Mount Etna. The sandy volcanic soils and sulphurous air gives great minerality and an almost salty edge to this delicious white, floral fresh and long with apples, melon and lemon rind and saline minerality, drinking beautifully.
Pietradolce was founded by brothers Michele and Mario Faro drawing on knowledge from their Etna farmer grandfather and using all their skills as vineyard brokers and nursery men to beat the rush to snap up some of the best sites high up on the northern and eastern slopes of Mount Etna. The patchwork of single vineyards, with old un-grafted vines growing at high altitude, on sandy volcanic soils make for fascinating complex wines. Factor in top winemaker Carlo Ferrini at the helm and these pure expressive tiny production wines are much in demand. This is made from their younger Carricante vines grown 800m up on the northern flank of Mout Etna, the sandy volcanic soils and sulphurous air gives great minerality and an almost salty edge to this delicious white, floral fresh and long with apples, melon and lemon rind and saline minerality, drinking beautifully.
