Pietramarina (Carricante grapes grown with the labor-intensive alberello system on Mt. Etna) is a beautiful white wine with well-defined mineral tones, solid structure and focused aromas of peach and almond. It even has a hint of tannin, and this white wine will safely age five or more years.
Pietramarina is a standout enological achievement from Mount Etna that is particularly good this vintage. The wine is beautifully crisp yet drying in the mouth in the way only a deeply mineral-driven wine can be. It offers delicate aromas of honey, butterscotch and almond paste with lingering notes of white stone and flint.
Pietramarina (a pure expression of Carricante) shows light touches of lemon rind and exotic fruit followed by etched mineral notes of crushed granite and brimstone. The finish is tight, fresh and capped by a slightly menthol-like sensation.
Made with the native Carricante grape, this elegant effort shows a dusty mineral nuance, backed by subtle tones of citrus and stone fruit. It shows structure and acidity that will help it age for more years to come.
Fruit for this crisp and mineral-rich white wine comes from 80-year-old bush-like vines and one of the most extreme viticulture spots on the planet (950 meters in altitude on the volcano). It is rich with exotic fruit, delicate floral and peach lollipop notes, and a firm, compact structure. Imported by Vino Bravo.
