Lovely acidity and great minerality are characteristics of terrain, which is undoubtedly the best for Etna whites. Structured wine, with complex aromas of grapefruit and herbs; fresh and flavorful, long finish. Made from old vines ranging between 100 and 120-years-old, this vibrant white opens with aromas suggesting citrus, orchard fruit, linden blossom, acacia and a whiff of beeswax. On the savory, radiant palate, a mineral vein underscores green apple, grapefruit, and aromatic herb. Give this a few more years to fully develop.
