Winemaker Notes: Tenuta delle Terre Nere Etna Bianco is a pale yellow color. The nose is floral and reminiscent of linden blooms. The palate is fresh and salty, with a mineral essence. Pair this wine with light pasta dishes, fish, and white meats.
Vinous - "The moment I put my nose to the glass, I questioned if this was just the entry-level 2020 Etna Bianco. Crushed stone and sea shells give way to nectarine, mint and a hint of vanilla bean to create a wildly attractive and Burgundian bouquet. On the palate, this speaks more in whispers, soft and subtle yet pleasantly sweet, contrasting ripe orchard fruits against vibrant acidity, and with gobs of minerality that sneakily collect toward the close. The medium-long finish is clean and refreshing, as hints of raw almond and pretty inner florals slowly taper off. This blend of 60% Carricante, 25% Catarratto, 10% Grecanico and 5% Minnella shines bright in the 2020 vintage. "
James Suckling - "I love the expressive, smoky nose that’s brimming with Amalfi lemon, plus touches of caper and parsley. Super-fresh and very crisp, but also polished, this is an exciting introduction to Etna dry whites. Fair length. A blend of indigenous grapes, dominated by Carricante. From organically grown grapes. Drink now. "
