Barone Villagrande is a 300 year-old winery with a 10th-generation winemaker in Marco Nicolosi. They are located on the east side of Etna, with a view of the Ionian Sea. Certified organic since 1989, they are delivering some of the best values on Etna.
The Bianco is mostly Carricante and is aged mostly in steel tank with some French oak. The oak adds a lushness to the wine that is very pleasurable, especially since it's accompanied by spicy lemon pepper, zippy citrus and salty notes. All of those elements create a lovely tension between the bite and the body. Perfect for mussels or fried zucchini. [Jonathan Kemp, August 2021]
