โญ๏ธ91/100โญ๏ธ ๐‘ฐ๐’…๐’…๐’‚ ๐‘ฉ๐’Š๐’‚๐’๐’„๐’, 2019 ๐Ÿ“Etna, Sicily, Italy ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น ๐Ÿ‡ 100% Carricante โšก๏ธ13% Tasted: March 2021 My first try from the new joint venture between world famous โ€œMr. Barbarescoโ€, Angelo Gaja, and Alberto Graci from Graci on Etna, who joined forces to produce wines on the south facing slopes of Mount Etna with their first vintage released in 2017 - Idda Etna Rosso. First release of the Bianco was 2018. The name, Idda (meaning โ€œsheโ€ in Sicilian), is also the name the locals have given to Mount Etna โ€“ the Sicilians attribute a female nature to the mountain: a strict yet generous mother. The grapes are harvested from 4 ha. organically grown plots located in the altitude of 700-800 meters amsl. Whole bunch pressed and fermented in a combination of 10 hl. oak barrels and steel tanks, followed by 12 months in same kind of containers. I know nothing about the label design, but I think it might be Etna seen from above...(?). The nose is very expressive and in great harmony offering fruity aromas of ripe peach, grape fruit, banana peel, honeydew and tropical wine gums followed by greener notes of cress, fennel, freshly mowed lawn and pressed white flowers. Itโ€™s all complimented by a sick volcanic minerality (slightly smoky) and chalky quarry. The oak brings a nice buttery and Pecorino-like element. The palate is medium-bodied, dry, soft and round with a crispy โ€œcrescendo-acidityโ€ (gradually increasing in the mouth) offering fresh peach, lemon juice, mild malo, cress, white pepper, grass with salt and a hint of salmiak in the, very long, finish. Summarized, this wine shows great balance of fruit, malo and minerality with a nice perfumed touch. Delicious on its own, but would be sick with fresh seafood. Complex and harmonious.
