Tornatore Etna Bianco 2020

Shipping calculated at checkout.

Tornatore sits at about 1,000 metres above sea level on the north side of Mount Etna, the largest active volcano in Europe. This risky spot has been traced back through the Tornatore family to 1865, which begs the question, why take the high risk of growing grapes on an active volcano? The soil's unique character comes from the deteriorated lava, ash and stones from previous volcanic eruptions and the mild climate and persistent rainfall. The combination of soil, weather, and the winemakers' skill has made the northern slope of Etna an ideal area for the production of high-quality wines.

Made with the indigenous grape Carricante (otherwise known as Catarratto), the resulting Etna Bianco has pleasant grapefruit, white peach and herbs on the nose. An extraordinary minerality complements the palate's freshness with hints of fresh mint. 

Get this wine if you appreciate the reward that comes with risk and pair it with grilled bone marrow.
