"The 2015 Etna Bianco Superiore Pietra Marina (100% Carricante) is just so lovely. The wine is ethereal, light and delicate. On first nose, you get precise aromas of white peach, zesty pear and blanched almond. As the wine fleshes out and takes on more volume in the glass, it displays a beautiful array of mineral nuances. Those salty flinty notes will continue to evolve over the next ten years. It ages on the fine lees for 24 months in steel vats. Some 9,000 bottles were produced. Drink: 2018-2028. 93 points

This year, Benanti added a new wine to its portfolio called Etna Rosso Contrada Monte Serra. This wine marks the first release in a new single-contrada line of wines to be called the "linea contrade." This line of new products will be further enhanced from 2019 to 2021 to include a Carricante white wine from the Contrada Cavaliere and a Nerello Mascalese red from the same site. These two new wines (with 6,000 bottles of each) will be unveiled in 2019."
