    "Archineri" Bianco Etna DOC 2018

    Excellent mineral archineri from the ancient Carricante vine. With great clarity he shows his typical aroma profile of apple, banana. Peach and citrus. Fascinating close to the palate with a velvety texture, a hint of chalk and long mineral-complex aftertaste. Pre-Phylloxera = from root true vines! SUPERIORE.DE

    "Freshly sliced lemons, guava peel, green apples and spices. Medium body, fine layering of acidity and a floral, pretty finish." James Suckling

    "The 2018 Etna Bianco Archineri is slightly rounder and more robust (compared to the entry-level Etna Bianco) with rich aromas of white peach and melon. This mid-weight expression is also creamier and more intricate in terms of texture, and much of this is due to the advanced age of the pre-Phylloxera vines used to make Archineri, some of which are over 130 years old. This wine delivers a larger center of gravity, and it lacks that super chiseled sharpness and delineation you get in the other Bianco. This bottle reveals a more sophisticated approach and longer cellar-aging potential." Robert Parker

    "Splendid wine, produced from pre-phylloxera vines at 850m on Etna’s eastern slopes. Lively lime nose, the attack fresh and intense. Ripe citrus flavours dominate; very concentrated, mineral and imposing." Decanter

    "Very pale straw color. Gorgeous nose of white peach, lime, minerals and jasmine. Then fresh and crisp, but with an underlying glyceral note that provides backbone to the zingy citrus and pomaceous orchard fruit flavors. Finishes extremely long with strong notes of fresh ginger and an underpinning of mineral dust. An outstanding Etna Bianco." Vinous
