The 2018 Le Sabbie dell'Etna Bianco is absolutely fabulous. This blend of Carricante and Catarratto was sourced from the loamy sandy volcanic soils of the Cavanera Etnea Estate on the North Eastern side of the Volcano. This immediately begins with gorgeous aromas of ripe pears, white peaches, sea breeze and floral blossoms, underlined by a nice touch of mineral nuances. On the palate this possesses a gorgeous texture that us beautifully balanced, with a lovely combination of fruit and saline minerality that persists through the finish. While this Bianco is showing beautiful today, it should also continue to drink marvelously with another year or two of bottle age.
