Quantico Etna Bianco 2012

From a tiny selection of vineyard in the wonderfully-named hamlet of Linguaglossa on the northern slopes of Mount Etna in Sicily. It’s a blend of the native grape varieties to the tune of 70% carricante, 20% cataratto and 10% grillo. The vineyards are organically tended, and, interestingly, farmed using some unusual methods that include the use of magnetic fields, something I spoke briefly about with Pete Windrim from Krinklewood in the Hunter Valley; curious stuff.  Meanwhile, this wine sees some skin contact during its natural ferment in stainless steel.
