“Spanish broom, lemon drop and ripe orchard fruit are just some of the aromas you’ll find on this stunning white. The aromas carry to the linear, elegant palate, with additional tones of Meyer lemon, apricot, Mediterranean herbs and salt. Tangy acidity provides balance throughout.”~ KO

"A ripe, bright, medium-bodied version, with mouthwatering acidity providing fine cut for the baked pineapple, candied ginger, mandarin orange blossom and saline-tinged mineral notes that gain momentum and echo on the finish. A richer approach to young Carricante, but well-balanced and vibrant throughout. Drink now through 2027. 416 cases made, 200 cases imports."~AN

"The Giovanni Rosso 2017 Etna Bianco is a complete and attractive wine with bright aromas of peach, lemon zest and natural rubber. The wine shows a shiny, glossy quality that works very nicely. Do not underestimate the sophistication and mild complexity of this pretty white wine from volcanic soils."~ML

"Giovanni Rosso's Etna project was born in 2016 when Giovanni's son Davide purchased an old vineyard on the Northern slope of Mount Etna, near the village Solicchiata of Castiglione di Sicilia. Of a total of 6 hectares of vineyard surface, 1.5 are dedicated to indigenous white varietals, in particular, Carricante. This ancient grape variety is thought to have been growing on the volcanic slopes of Mt Etna for at least the past thousand years. It is characterized by a marked acidity and high yields as the name suggests (carica means "load" in Italian)."

"Straw yellow color with greenish reflections. Fresh, delicate nose of broom and citrus fruit mixed with herbs. The sip is full, crisp and round, with a pleasant minerality. The finish immediately recalls the soil where it comes from. Excellent with appetizers, risotto with fresh clams, fried fish, and roasted white fish. Also great with white meat and vegetable dishes."~Winery Notes
