White Table Wine
Terra Costantino’s ‘deAetna’ is an elegant, versatile wine from one of the boutique producers responsible for taking Sicily’s wines from inconsequential to sought-after over the past decade.
Fruit comes from the Terra Costantino estate’s carefully tended Certified Organic vineyard on the southeast slope of Mount Etna. Grapes are harvested by hand, and wine ages for several months in stainless steel prior to bottling.
A blend dominated by Carricante, one of the island’s indigenous grapes. Carricante brings a balance of grainy grounded minerality, assertive citrus acidity and white flower aromatics to play.
“There’s a tropical flair to the 2020 Etna Bianco De Aetna that makes it a total pleasure on the nose, as notes of pineapple, green melon and hints of confectioners’ spice fill the senses. It’s soft-textured, enveloping the palate in ripe orchard fruits, yet nicely balanced by lime-tinged acidity that maintains marvelous freshness. The 2020 De Aetna finishes with a gentle tug of residual tension and salty mineral tones that are left to linger on. Start to finish, this is a highly pleasurable Etna Bianco. The blend is 80% Carricante, 15% Catarratto and 5% Minnella.” 91 points, Eric Guido, Vinous Media, June 2022
