Benanti Pietramarina Etna Bianco is a pale yellowish color with bright greenish tints. The aromas are intense, rich, delicate and fruity (think ripe apple). The taste is dry with a pleasant acidity and nice aromatic persistence.
"From 80-year-old bush vines, this carricante grows in the sandy, volcanic soils of Milo, on the eastern side of Etna at 3,100 feet.
