Over on another volcanic Mediterranean island, the slopes around Etna in Sicily also produce sensational wines such as the Etna Bianco, Benanti, 2017, made from the little known carricante grape, grown at 750m high, where altitude gives freshness and the soils incredible textures to the wine, with mouth filling, creamy pear and apple flavours; I wish I could have had a glass of this to match the richly savoury pasta with sardines and pine nuts I had in a Sicilian restaurant recently.
