Critics' Choice: Pietradolce Etna Bianco
Mick O'Connell, Master of Wine, co-owner of Neighbourhood wines, and columnist with the Business Post writes about a stunning white from the slopes of Mount Etna, the Pietradolce Etna Bianco.
Vivid and complex, this carricante is a unique wine but one that will appeal to lovers of dry riesling, chenin blanc and even chablis. Layered with subtle spice, tropical fruit and some golden delicious apple notes, it is stunning with food, where its refreshing nature keeps the palate thrilled.
I first encountered the Pietradolce Etna Bianco in a restaurant, because there wasn't anything else 'new' to choose, the wine dazzled as much as the amazing cuisine! If you're looking to impress someone with a serious but electric white wine, this is for you!
