Description

Embarking on a journey of organic finesse, the 2019 Etna Bianco Archineri, a limited production of 7,000 bottles, embodies the essence of Carricante from pre-phylloxera vines. Meticulously crafted in stainless steel, this wine unfolds with a pristine and exacting expression of the grape, harnessing the simplicity of winemaking to harmonize seamlessly with the elegantly concentrated and sculpted fruit of the exceptional Etna growing season. The bouquet captivates with prominent notes of peach, honey, and crushed stone, offering a sensorial symphony that resonates with the grace and purity inherent in this distinctive vintage.

The 2021 Etna Bianco Archineri is a beautiful wine with the crystalline luminosity and bright flavours you look for in a wine from Etna made from the popular Carricante grape. In this case, the fruit comes from vines from before the phylloxera plague at an altitude of 900 metres. There is a certain saltiness and crushed oyster shells with grapefruit, unripe peach and green apple.

Made from vines up to 120 years old, it's a gorgeous white with lemon and saline green fruits allied to a full structure with tons of sapidity. Long, stony and savoury, the finish displays juicy streaks of sweet pineapple, yellow plum and peach. Delicious!

Bright straw yellow in colour. Aromas of yellow peach, persimmon, medlar and delicate hints of flint on the nose. Soft, subtle palate, initial aromatic thrust, fresh texture and long finish.
