Salvoni Benanti
FROM Mt. Etna
No Italian wine region has exploded into popularity on an international scale in the last few years quite like Mount Etna. The Benanti family truly is one of the originals - they have farmed estate vineyards on Mount Etna since the 1800s when founder Dr. Giuseppe Benanti first planted vines. The winery is traditional and makes stunning wines of a mineral driven and classical nature. The famed Etna Bianco Cru “Pietramarina” is a powerful, yet complex white wine, deserving of its praise. Their highly affordable entry-level Etna Rosso is a precise, bright and highly crushable version of Nerello Mascalese. Finally, the more complex reds of the domaine like the monovarietal Nerello Mascalese or the “Serra della Contessa” Etna Rosso Cru are both dense, structured and truly do “meet you on the corner of grenache and sangiovese” (as we love to say at Frasca when it comes to Nerello!). Proprietor Salvoni Benanti will be on hand to show the greatest examples of the entire appellation. A must for Italian wine lovers and wine nerds
