Carricante is the main white on Mt Etna and for good reason. High acid, moderate aromatic intensity, citrus flavours and able to transmit the mineral character of the soils. Can be oak aged and lees stirred to add more complexity.

Mt Etna 

Just a wonderfully unlikely sounding spot. Situated on the volcano and all. But it means that it has the most mineral laden soils of all vineyard areas on earth. When tasting Benanti’s white I originally wrote Montrachet like in the notes. Subsequently thought I might be overstating my case. But then further tastings have proven me correct. But you can decided that for yourself.
