TASTING NOTES Color: intense straw yellow with green hues. Nose: the enchanting intensity of its scents afford distinct profile on the nose with hints of yellow wild flowers, broom and acacia, blended with fruity aromas of white-fleshed fruit, apples and ripe peaches as well as of aromatic herbs and seaweed. Gentle yet unrelenting, it shines brightly for its elegance and body. Aristocratic and pure, it stands out among the great white wines grown at high altitudes. Palate: a matchless minerality. Marvelous for its rigorous style, it stands out for its force and roundness. a white mirroring the volcanic terroir of origin, expressing round and smooth profile on the palate. Characteristics: lavish, elegant and rigorous. It is a hallmark wine that embodies power and aristocratic smoothness. A perfect balance between acidity and freshness, an endless strength of minerality and saltiness. Special, unique and matchless.

The Cavanera Bianco is from 30 year old Vines

Worthy of the 3 Glasses award - crisp, slightly tangy, and well-balanced

This Etna Bianco, 2021 Cavanera by Firriato is "eccellente". I like the acidity and the slight tanginess like a NZ sauvignon blanc might have, but it's even smoother and purer.
I don't think you can go wrong with this white wine for just sipping or to go with food. It is great to have Gambero Rosso and Ciao Daniel pick out these great wines so I don't have to sample dozens to find them!
