Tornatore Pietrarizzo Etna Bianco 2019
|Region||Italy, Sicily, Etna|
Intense straw yellow, with light green reflections. Pleasant hints of exotic fruits, especially of grapefruit and white peach, mark the nose of this wine which shows its true identity on the palate with a pleasant flavor and freshness complemented by an extraordinary minerality and light taste sweetness.
Made predominantly from Carricante with a drop of Catarratto, this smooth, stunning white offers delicate, enticing scents of Spanish broom, chamomile, ripe white-stone fruit and a whiff of smoke. Savory and loaded with elegance, the medium-bodied, focused palate features juicy Meyer lemon, ripe Bartlett pear, golden apple and tangy, saline mineral notes. Bright acidity lends tension and balance. Drink through 2025.
A sleek, lightly mouthwatering white that layers a subtle, smoke-tinged undertow with notes of melon, grapefruit sorbet and elderflower. Modest finish. Carricante and Catarratto. Drink now. 1,583 cases made, 392 cases imported.
