90 points Vinous
"Both spicy and sweet, the 2020 Etna Bianco impresses with a seductive bouquet that shows ripe pear, white flowers, mint and a hint of lemon confit. It’s silky-smooth, motivated by brisk acids and a mix of tart orchard fruits and zesty citrus. This finishes with mouthwatering tension and a caking of salty minerals that keeps you coming back to the glass over and over again. The Etna Bianco is a highly enjoyable blend of 70% Carricante and 30% Catarratto."
Vinous Reverie Notes
For more than 100 years, the Scammacca del Murgo family has cultivated vines and olives under the fiery gaze of Mount Etna in Sicily. More than once this active volcano has destroyed vineyard plots and covered their family home under ash—events that would rattle the nerves of even the most daredevil winemakers. Yet for the Scammacca del Murgo clan, it’s just the price one pays for the privilege of growing vines in one of the more dynamic and breathtaking wine regions on earth. Tasting Notes: A lively blend of Sicily’s two native white grapes. Carricante contributes citrus fruit and minerality, while Catarratto white fruit flavors and body. Jasmine and yellow flowers, good acidity.
