At the Toowoomba Wine Show Judges Dinner - no detailed notes other than to say that this was a typical light to medium bodied Etna red with plenty of minerality. Made for Tapas.

This stuff has catapulted to my list of top 5 favourite varietals. It has such a nice weight in the mouth, long finish, great minerality. Not too heavy, not too light. Such a treat.

Full disclosure. I'm drinking this while on vacation in Sicily. Maybe it was the food, the surroundings or something unexplainable but It tastes so good here. I drink this wine often in the SFBay area but here in its birthplace, it truly shines. Dried cherries, rhubarb, ripe cranberry, a hint of twizzlers, forest floor, along with great acidity and subtle minerality, (can you say volcanic soil) make this wine a winner. Pinot/Burgundy lovers take note. What a value.

life needs more hearty red wine (ripe, medium-bodied, minerally & aptly volcanic Graci #Etna Rossa ''12) & luscious bucatini all'Amatriciana (at Maialino)

This was a very useful, fresh Etna wine and it went quite well with our first grill up of the year.

Cranberry, cherry, plum, tobacco leaf, mossy earth and hints of currant. Good structure and quite tannic.

Gorgeous in all it's smoky, floral, earthy, and dark-berried gloriousness. Lighter bodied, yet complex, and full of character.

this NEEDED an hour to start coming together ~ still tight, still part thin, but also part elegant ~ Mediterranean herbs & brush mixed w red berries ~ hints of Christmas mistletoe & cake coming through...

Great rose for a rainy Sunday in August. Has some nice weight, but also Lively and fresh. Sour cherries and a tartness that leaves you wanting another sip/glass. Great value for sure.
