Mt. Etna and Wine
From The MetroWines Book Suggestion Department
Making wine on Europe's largest active volcano doesn't come easy.
Frequent changes in topography, elevation, and weather influence each vintage
and every winemaker has an interpretation of the evolving volcanic landscape.
This is part of what makes Etna so exciting. The wines are as inviting as the terrain. For millennia the mountain served as a backdrop in the development of Europe. Today, the UNESCO Heritage Site is a destination for the world.
American wine expert Benjamin Spencer goes beyond the vines to explore
the history and rebirth of the region that has everyone talking about Sicily.

But of course, from Mt. Etna
2018 Tascante Buonara Etna Bianca 2018 Caricante
Buonora is Tenuta Tascante’s white wine from Mount Etna’s indigenous
Carricante grape variety. Historically prized for its high acidity
and abundant productivity, Carricante is a multi-facited grape that ripens late
and gains complexity with aging. Grapes for the Tenuta Tascanate Buonora
are sourced from cool-climate vineyards on the north and east faces
of the volcano’s slopes. Really great bottle!
