Tasting Notes

A very elegant wine with a delicate bouquet of white stone fruits with hints of apricot and peach mingled with savoury, mineral notes. The palate is very complex with an energetic mineral quality which runs through to the long finish. Drink from release.

Reviews & Scores

The 2013 Etna Bianco Archineri is a full package Italian white. This is a pure expression of Carricante from 125-year-old, pre-phylloxera vines planted at 850 meters in altitude on the eastern flank of Etna near Milo. All the intensity you feel here comes from the suburb quality of fruit from these precious, ancient vines. The bouquet shows citrusy freshness with white peach, honey and cantaloupe melon. The mouthfeel is creamy and crisp with streamlined precision and great sense of energy. This Etna white has the acidity and natural structure for moderate cellar aging.

TASTING NOTES

Sheltered by the great monoliths of Solutré and Vergisson, the terraced slopes of Pouilly-Fuissé produce some of the greatest whites in Burgundy. The appellation extends across four communes: Solutré-Pouilly, Fuissé, Chaintré and Vergisson. The clay and limestone terroir of Vergisson gives these wines a particularly complex character. Armit Wines
