Tim’s Tasting Notes

92

2010 Planeta Carricante, Sicilia

£17.99 - £16.50 for the 2009, 13%, Great Western Wine

Is Mount Etna Italy's greatest secret when it comes to whites? It certainly makes some amazing wines from the Carricante grape: taut, minerally and refreshing. This is stony and crisp with notes of white flowers and lime blossom and a tangy finish. Sicily's answer to Chablis. Drink now to 3 years.
