Benanti Etna Bianco 'Pietra Marina' 2015

2015 Etna Bianco DOC Superiore 750ml

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.
 
93 POINTS, Ian D'Agata, Vinous - June 2019
"Luminous straw yellow. Offers an enticing mix of lemon, honey and herbs on the nose. Then very mineral too, with laser-like cut and clarity on the long, stony finish. This ought to develop nicely. Made with Carricante on the eastern slopes of Etna, that are by far the best for this grape variety."
 
"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
