Graci – Sopra il pozzo Etna rosso 750 ml

155.00

Graci’s Etna Rosso “Arcuria Sopra il Pozzo” is one of the most prestigious labels in the entire Etna area. It is a red of the highest quality level, which while retaining a typically territorial face, goes well beyond the horizon of the volcano to become part of the circle of the greatest wines of our peninsula. It is the result of meticulous zoning and research work, conducted with separate vinification of each single parcel of the estate’s vineyards. Every year, this small vineyard of just over one hectare in the Arcuria district always gives wines of superior quality, as happens with the Grand Crus of Burgundy. Thus was born the idea of enhancing it with an ad hoc label that would make its fascinating face known.

“Arcuria Sopra il Pozzo” is an Etna Rosso produced by one of the most important wineries in the Etna area. Graci has always stood out for a range of high-profile wines, made with craftsmanship and love for their land. The Vigna Sopra il Pozzo is located in Contrada Arcuria, in the Passopisciaro area, at an altitude of 600-700 meters above sea level. The soils are of volcanic origin and in this parcel they have a particular texture, made up of overlapping and alternating layers of lava stone and coarse sand. At the end of the harvest, with yields of less than 40 quintals per hectare, the grapes are sent for fermentation in open oak vats with a long period of maceration on the skins. Before bottling, the wine ages for 18-24 months in large oak barrels.

Graci’s Etna Rosso “Arcuria Sopra il Pozzo” is an excellence that expresses the luminous purity of Nerello Mascalese. It is made only in the most favorable years, when the grapes reach an absolutely ideal degree of ripeness and aromatic intensity. In the glass it has a light ruby red color, almost transparent. The olfactory profile is refined and of great finesse, characterized by aromas of red currant, raspberry, blood orange, pomegranate, hints of aromatic herbs of the Mediterranean scrub and hints of graphite. The sip is harmonious and with a delicate aromatic facet, which slowly opens up to a profound expressive complexity. The tannic texture is very fine, well integrated with the body of the wine, which wraps it harmoniously. The finish is elegant, persistent, fresh and savory.
