where to buy
  • Introduction

    • THE WINERY: Winemaking in the Benanti family can be traced back to the late 1800s in Viagrande. This deep-rooted passion for wine is what led Giuseppe Benanti to establish the namesake winery in 1988.

      THE WINE: Selection of grapes from vineyards located on the eastern and southern slopes of Mount Etna, particularly suitable given the high altitude and abundant luminosity.

    "This sleek, minerally white is well-cut and refreshing, with flavors of plump white cherry, lemon oil, spun honey and chamomile that expand on the palate, underscored by lingering notes of minerally smoke and salt on the spiced finish."
