Barone di Villagrande Etna Bianco Superiore 2019

Barone di Villagrande

For being one of the most historic estates on Mount Etna, Barone di Villagrande flies surprisingly under the radar here in the US.  Their wines are delicious, classic examples of Etna that offer fantastic quality for the price.  This textured, chiseled white offers both firm minerality and a level of savory, smoky complexity that you wouldn't expect from such a modestly-priced wine.  Even though Etna might be the hottest real estate in the world of wine, with dozens of world-famous winemakers descending on the region, sometimes you have to go with who's been there all along...as Villagrande has.
