Benanti Etna Bianco Superiore Pietra Marina 2016
|Region||Italy, Sicily, Etna|
The color is pale yellow with greenish nuances. The nose is intense, rich, complex, ample and mildly fruity, with notes of orange blossom flowers and ripe apple. The palate is dry and mineral, with a pleasantly high acidity, saline notes, a marked aromatic persistence and an after taste reminiscent of anise and almond. Serving temperature: 10 - 12°C Excellent with fish and seafood, including elaborate recipes.
Delicate scents evoking Mediterranean scrub and citrus with the barest whiff of kerosene shape the subtle nose. On the linear palate, racy acidity accompanies honey and Meyer lemon before a saline close.
