Description

Benanti is a reference-point producer for beautiful wines from Mount Etna, one of Sicily’s most privileged spots. It offers a great introduction to one of the important indigenous grapes of Etna, Carricante.
 
"Depending on the vintage, Pietra Marina, which I believe is one of Italy’s best whites, can be rich and concentrated with great minerality and herbal and citrus flavors. It can age well, too. Over time, it can take on a kerosene quality reminiscent of aged riesling, but it never loses its lip-smacking succulence. It’s balanced, refreshing, distinctive, complex and delicious."  ~Eric Asimov, NY Times
