2010 Vivera Salisere Etna Bianco, Etna, Sicily

( N/A, 13%, N/A UK (Available from the winery) )

Carricante made in quite a modern style, with a sauvignon-like nose of gooseberries and grapefruit, a hint of quince, and dry, salty tang. This wine spent 10 months on the lees, which has given it attractive weight, but not at the expensive of the freshness or the fruit. Organically produced.
