2018 Graci Etna RossoGraci
Producer: Alberto Graci
Region: Passopisciaro, Sicily. Zone: Etna Rosso DOC.
Grape: 100% Nerello Mascalese
Tasting Notes: A finely meshed red, with round and creamy tannins woven with a subtle streak of smoky mineral. Flavours of dried cherry and raspberry fruit, a touch of cured tobacco and accents of ground white pepper and citrus. Lightly chewy on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2026.
