Graci Etna Rosso 2015

SKU 59720


At Graci, young Alberto Aiello Graci remains steadfast in his respect for local traditions as well as the distinct nature of each vintage and only cultivates traditional varieties indigenous to Mount Etna: the red grapes Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio, and white grapes Carricante and Catarratto. Intervention of any kind is extremely limited, both in the vineyard and in the cellar. They do not use herbicides in order to preserve the unique balance and vital energy of the soil. They do not use barriques, but only the big, upright, wooden casks known as tini and large, well-used wood barrels. Their sole objective is to reflect the personalities of their vineyards and the sublime differences between each and every harvest.

Wine AdvocateHere is a textbook wine from Etna. The 2015 Etna Rosso reflects the basic promises of this exciting appellation. The wine offers power and grace with territory-specific aromas of cigar ash, dark granite and dried black currant. Background tones of wild sage, balsam herb and tar give the wine a greater sense of dimension and depth. The finish is balanced and silky in texture, yet Nerello Mascalese always delivers a firm tannic backbone. Graci lets the fruit speak for itself.

Wine EnthusiastPressed wild flower, hay, fennel and ripe berry scents mingle together in the glass. The refreshing palate combines crushed strawberry, juicy red cherry, saline and a hint of baking spice alongside bright acidity.
