Planeta Etna Bianco (2017)

New

The Carricante grapes from Etna always give us great satisfaction as the combination of black sand and altitude provide distinct aromas and three dimensional flavours. In this vintage we find notes of white acacia flowers, fresh almonds and mountain peaches, on the palate it is juicy and full of hints of yellow plums and prickly pear.
