2017 Graci Etna Bianco

SKU #1403548 92 points James Suckling

 A firm and dense white, yet ever so fresh and vivid. Medium to full body with linear acidity that gives it form and drive.  (8/2018)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2017 Etna Bianco is a blend of 70% Carricante with 30% Catarratto. Compared to many of its peers, this expression from Graci offers more textural richness and fruity volume. The bouquet delivers stone fruit, honeydew melon and candied lemon peel. This was a hot vintage, and that extra intensity is apparent here. (ML)  (12/2018)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Lovely fruit and floral aromas waft from the glass of this bright, light- to medium-bodied white, with a spine of racy acidity playing off the subtly fleshy range of ripe Anjou pear, white peach and candied ginger flavors. A hint of spicy mineral lingers on the finish. Drink now through 2022. (AN)  (10/2018)

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world.
