Tornatore, 'Pietrarizzo' Etna Bianco 2020


The nose is expressive and combines notes of exotic fruit, grapefruit and a slight spiciness and smokiness coming from the aging on the lees. The palate is full and powerful, but not tiring due to the presence of a clear mineral tone.

In the south-west of Savoie lies the village of Jongieux, where Antoine and his parents make congenial, unaffected wines from local grape varieties. For whites these are jacquère and roussette and for reds gamay and mondeuse. The vineyards are situated on poor limestone slopes at about 400 meters altitude. The area has even recently been classified as a national heritage site because of its beauty. And for 7th generation Antoine, preserving this landscape is one of the most important aspects and therefore the domaine is certified 'Haute Valeur Environnementale', which means they are super sustainable.
