The wines of Mount Etna have really been speaking to me over the past year. There are so many interesting wines that all capture the unique volcanic energy there in their own way. I especially like the wines of Anna Martens and Eric Narioo and the way they combine freshness and playful rusticity with the darker tones of the volcano’s influence. Anna, an Aussie, and Eric, a Frenchie, started making wine on Etna in 2008. Everything is worked by hand, using organic and Biodynamic practices. Nothing is added in the cellar except an occasional, minimal dose of sulfur. They have vines on the eastern side of Etna, closer to the Ionian Sea’s influence, from Linguaglossa to Contrada Nave. 

Palmento Bianco is a beautiful, almost delicate wine, but it slowly reveals notes of dried apple ring, nutmeg, and ginger. The underpinning of seaspray and brine is wildly refreshing. Don’t be fooled by its understated, sprightly, and whimsical feel: this wine is dangerously chuggable.
