Wine Review: This golden yellow colored Carricante from Planeta opens with a chamomile tea and ginger bouquet with hints of lime and white grapefruit. On the palate, this wine is light plus bodied with plus acidity. The mouthfeel is bright and expressive. The flavor profile is stony minerality and saline blend with notes of ginger and grapefruit. I also detected hints of almond, lemon verbena and white pepper. The finish is dry and very refreshing. This Carricante would pair perfectly with marinated grilled swordfish steaks. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: An explosion of aromas of ripe fruit and the aromatic content of white flowers which magically transport the taster to the slopes of Etna. The wine manages to combine softness and strength with a drinkable richness, with fruit flavors of lemon peel and green apple linked to an endearing mineral power which prolongs the finish. An extraordinary companion for dishes based on fish of a certain oiliness and thus ideal for any gastronomic experience encountered by the sea.
