2012 Graci "Arcuria" Etna Rosso

SKU #1250014 93 points James Suckling

 Lots of sweet strawberry character on the nose and palate. Very pure. Full body, soft, silky tannins and a long, intense finish. Loads of flavor but lively and tangy. Drink or hold.  (10/2014)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

 Aromas of wild berry, crushed violet, leather, menthol and a whiff of lightly toasted oak waft from the glass. The savory but refined palate delivers juicy wild cherry, black raspberry, ground white pepper, licorice, sage and a mocha note alongside chewy tannins. It's structured but elegant, with a mineral-driven finish. (KO)  (4/2015)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 There is no mistaking the 2012 Etna Rosso Arcuria for anything but a volcanic wine. The bouquet is redolent of smoke, ash and crushed mineral. There are savory tones of barbecue spice, scorched earth, grilled herb and dark fruity tones of plum and blackberry. This wine delivers an impressive level of chewy richness and balanced density. Arcurìa should continue its steady evolution over the next ten years. (ML)  (9/2015)

- 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. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
