Benanti Etna Bianco is a characterful white wine produced with Carricante grapes that grow in 35-50 year old vineyards on the southern and eastern slopes of Mt Etna in Sicily. It displays delicious ripe red and green apple aromas with a hint of ripe pear. On the palate the intense fruit is complimented by a textured mouthfeel, balanced by a refreshing acidity and an aromatic, herbaceous touch on the finish.
Excellent with all seafood, like spaghetti with sea urchins, grilled shrimps or swordfish.
The Benanti winery was founded in 1988 by Giuseppe Benanti. Wine had been produced by the family for several generations, mostly for private consumption, until Giuseppe finally decided to establish the winery with the aim of preserving the unique terroir of Etna’s volcanic slopes, whilst cherishing and developing the indigenous Etnean varieties.
