wine review: Donnafugata Sul Vulcano Etna Bianco DOC 2020

Donnafugata's Sul Vulcano Etna Bianco DOC highlights the incredible minerality and texture this volcanic region is renowned for. The nose shows ripe citrus, fragrant floral blossom, and a very inviting sea breeze salinity. The palate is refreshing with a creaminess and pronounced minerality on the long finish. Enjoy with seafood, creamy pasta, BBQ shrimp, or your favourite hors d'oeuvre. Tasted March 2023. 92 points. Matt Steeves -

wine review: Donnafugata Sul Vulcano Etna Rosso DOC 2019

From Sicily's Mount Etna region (Etna Rosso DOC) which produces very unique and complex wines from its volcanic soils, like Donnafugata's Sul Vulcano.
