2015 Planeta Etna Bianco

Native white from the slopes of Etna

2015 Planeta Etna Bianco

Planeta’s Etna Bianco is made from 100 percent native Carricante grown in their Monteleguardia vineyard. Fruit was hand-picked, de-stemmed and pressed, then inoculated and fermented cool in the company’s Feudo di Mezzo winery. Ten percent of the must fermented in oak barriques.

The robe is a light sunrise yellow with a fragrance of hay, straw, grass, green melon, and quince. The body is round and ample, suggesting honeydew and yellow peaches, while a slight grassiness adds dimension. The finish is languorous.

Pair it with young and medium-aged cheeses or poultry and fish. Also try with hearty salads, especially with savory elements like nuts, bacon, or cheese. A natural with spaghetti alle vongole.
