When you smell Etna Rosso, your senses will be met with a superbly balanced Nerello Mascalese, where notes of forest fruit and black cherry, dance with spice and dried herbs along a particular wisp of volcanic ash. A hint of violet and balsamique can be noticed.

When you taste Etna Rosso, you’ll encounter a dry and firm red wine combining elegance with structure. Even if the intriguing aromatic complexity rushes to take centerstage the vibrant tannins are hard to miss. And while you take a moment to put thoughts into words, the wine’s delicious acidity brings forth the next sip. A smoky, mineral finish provides the undertone for the whole experience.

The Brains Behind It

Back to his roots

Graci was created by Alberto Graci, the son of a Sicilian farmer. Alberto became a successful investment banker at a young age, living the corporate life in Milan. His Sicilian roots called him back home. In 2004 he came back to Sicily following the death of his grandfather, and was fascinated by the volcanic vineyards he discovered while dealing with his grandfather’s estate. Against all good advice, he began acquiring his own vineyards in a project of folly, at a time when nobody believed in the capacity of the earth on the snowy, smoking volcano. Today, his estate is one of the largest in the region, and his wines are recognised for their originality, daring, and incomparable verve.
