TORNATORE Etna Bianco 2019

(Mt. Etna, Sicily, Italy) $20

If you could be on a rocky island in the Mediterranean, breathing in the warm sun and smelling the salty ocean air mixed with the wild fragrance of resiny herbs—if you could actually be there—then you would not need this wine. But for $20? Just surrender yourself. Tornatore is made from indigenous carricante grapes grown at nearly 2,000 feet above sea level on the slopes of Mt. Etna, Sicily’s still-active volcano. The wine’s freshness, savoriness, and stony minerality are fantastic. (12.5 Abv)
