WTN: Etna Bianco 2007

by Bruce Hayes » Wed Jul 01, 2009 10:03 am

Murgo
DOC Sicily

A blend of Caricante (70 per cent) and Catarratto.

Bright yellow in the glass.

Smoky, salty on the nose.

Medium weight, nicely tangy, lemon, grapefruit, peppery, a bitter streak, slightly viscous, salty, tingly on the tongue, tart and refreshing.

Bitter lemon, peppery, salty on the finish.

A refreshing wine for a hot evening.

Purchased at $14.95 (Canadian).

Bruce, I was very impressed by a white Etna at a tasting about 18 months ago. Good choice to start the month. A rapid survey of my cellar shows me low of off-beat whites; I need to go out and buy some Mediterranean whites.
