Elegant and fine, the 2017 Etna Bianco Contrada Calderara is a wine of extreme precision and balance. Like its peers, this expression of Carricante offers a rather neutral bouquet upon first inspection, but the wine warms in the glass to show honey, pear and smoke. The real action, however, is with those drying mineral notes of crushed stone and marine salt. Those give a jolt of energy, excitement and electricity. Give this wine a bit more time to develop in the bottle. Some 5,600 bottles were made.
