"Buonora is an exuberant Etna Bianco, bursting with flavors of lemon and lime driven by mouthwatering acidity. It comes across initially as an easy-drinking white, but a subtle smoky salinity emerges with exposure to air. It's a fresh, mineral-laden alternative for fans of Chablis and Sancerre. Tascante is the Etna project of Tasca dAlmerita and was launched by seventh-generation owner Alberto Tasca with the 2008 vintage."
