Quite a subtle Etna white, and all the more appealing because of that. The nose suggest white stones, blossoms, lime and freshly squeezed lemons. The palate shows real focus and intensity, which isn’t that common in 2017. Medium to full body, bright acidity and a medium-long finish. 100% carricante. Drink now. 93 POINTS, JAMES SUCKLING

The 2017 Etna Bianco Archineri shows a mild and subtle bouquet with distant tones of crushed mineral followed by dried citrus, white apricot and dried sage. That subtle personality grows with time, and the wine needs a little extra time to open. It goes from citrus and grapefruit to crushed stone, yellow rose and honeysuckle. The finish is lean but zesty and crisp. Old vines are used to make this wine, some as old as 130 years old. Only 3,000 bottles were produced. 92 POINTS, ROBERT PARKER
