Benanti Contrada Rinazzo Etna Bianco 2019


he wine appears straw yellow with bright green reflections. The nose is delicate but intense, rich and generous, with mild fruity notes of orange blossom and ripe apple. The palate is dry, mineral, and harmoniously balanced with a pleasant acidity and an aromatic persistence with hints of anise and almond. Serving temperature: 10 – 12°C. It pairs well with all fish dishes, even complex courses.

Contrada Rinazzo is on the eastern side of Mount Etna, within the territory of Milo. The tiny municipality of Milo is the only area permitted for wines labeled Etna Bianco Superiore, according to the Etna DOC rules. Contrada Rinazzo is particularly well-known for its elevation (approximately 800 m a.s.l. / 2,600 ft a.s.l.), abundant luminosity, continuous ventilation and exposure to the sea (only 5 miles from Ionian Sea). The steep, terraced vineyard is planted to Carricante, the noble indigenous white grape variety of Mount Etna. The young vines are grown with a traditional alberello system and rest against a chestnut pole, with a planting density of about 8,000 plants per hectare and a yield of 6,500 kg/ha.
