Established in 2005, Pietradolce stretches over 11 hectares of high-altitude vineyards on Etna. At the heart of the winery is an unashamed passion for their land and the utmost respect for the autochthonous grape varieties Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio and Carricante. Etna’s volcanic soils and some old, pre-phylloxera vines give birth to some of the most vibrant wines in Sicily. Pietradolce’s range is crafted with a real sense of terroir, incredible purity, concentration and longevity.
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. 94 points, Ian D’Agata, Drink 2019-2023more

Sensuous and complex, with a fine structure and a refreshing finish, this wine has the capacity to age for another ten years...more

Utterly delicious and hedonistic. Juicy, rich yet savoury fruit. Spice, smoke and floral lift. Wonderful texture, silky and suave offset by bitter cherry and fresh acidity. This is a spellbinding wine which evokes the earthy complexity of this unique terroir in a delightfully drinkable style. Barbagalli 2011 manages to be at once serious, complex and meaningful and joyful. Enchanting.more
