“Sicilian stunner stole our hearts at #4!”

At #4 this Sicilian stunner captured our hearts.

By David Gettenberg

We tasted several outstanding whites this year, especially 2017 white Burgundies, some of the most ethereal whites we've tasted in a decade.

However, the 2017 Giovanni Rosso Etna Rosso Bianco from Sicily captured our taste buds like no other.

There is something in the terroir that drives the wonderful profile of this white: Volcanic soil and high elevation impart vibrant minerality and sophistication without sacrificing texture, flavor, or balance.

Eric Azimov of The New York Times recently wrote about Sicilian whites calling them the most distinctive, "white wines in Italy, if not the world."

So why do we love this Etna Bianco?

No one flavor or element overpowers the other. It caresses the palate in perfect balance. White peach, orange, citrus, ginger, and herb notes meld together seamlessly. Then, the terroir infuses a zesty core and signature salinity. Medium weight, the wine seems to touch every aspect of white wine you could possibly desire. Sophisticated and graceful, it has tones of a Gavi and the finesse of a Premier Cru Chablis.

How should you enjoy this versatile white? Any way you want! However, we suggest pairing it with your favorite seafood dish or any pasta dish with garlic and olive oil.

Enjoy now and over the next five years.
