About the Winery:
Pietradolce, means sweet stone in Italian and is an ode to Etna. The volcanic soil covering the slopes is very stony, sandy and mineral-rich. The Etna volcanos abundant mineral components and microclimate cool nights, warm days and wide-ranging temperature variations give Pietradolce wines extraordinary richness, minerality, fragrance and depth.

Pure Carricante, Etna's ancient white grape, which has been growing there for a thousand years. After so many centuries, the variety has perfectly adapted to the unique climate on the slopes, especially the drastic temperature changes between day and night.

Notes from the Winemaker:
Because of the volcanic soil, its mineral component and the unique climate conditions, this Etna white has the pronounced minerality and unabashed acidity typical to wines of this territory.

Tasting Notes:
Soft straw yellow. Shows lovely fruit, distinctive acidity and the typical minerality of Etna wines.

Food Pairing:
Pairs well with fresh cheeses, grilled vegetables, and pizza.

Ratings & Reviews

91 Points- Decanter Magazine:
"Scents of exotic blossoms, yellow plum and beautiful citrus zest. Mineral and racy, very crisp and firm, steely and citrus-driven. Bright acid with a firm, steely structure. Nominated by Michelle Cherutti-Kowal MW." (Nov 2023)

90 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2022 Etna Bianco is delicate and floral with a nuanced blend of nectarine and wet stones. It’s soft and enveloping with a pretty inner sweetness up front and zesty acidity that enlivens its core of citrus-tinged apples. This finishes long, staining, yet still fresh, with sour lime and savory spice notes." - Eric Guido (Sep 2023)

90 Points - Wine Spectator:

"A zippy white, with salty tang supporting flavors of crunchy pear, grated ginger, Meyer lemon peel, pastry cream and blanched almond. Drink now through 2027. 2,083 cases made, 640 cases imported." - Alison Napjus (Feb 2024)
