Calabretta Carricante Bianco 2019
Mostly Carricante with small amount of Minella Bianca. Massimiliano Calabretta is a part-time college professor that makes Etna wines like Bartolo Mascarello. The majority of his vines are 80+ years old and are on their own rootstock, after fermentation the juice ages in botte grande then in bottles for a prolonged period, Massimiliano often releases his wines six to eight years after most Etna producers. He only makes 2,000 bottles of this rare white and it shows melon, straw, hay, and almonds. Gorgeous.
