2018 Graci Etna Rosato

SKU #1412121 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Graci's 2018 Etna Rosato boasts a pale pink color with mild highlights of copper and gold. The wine is slightly closed at the beginning (with a tiny touch of reduction that blows off) but opens eventually to reveal rose petal, cassis and cranberry. There is a touch of wild herb or dried basil leaf as well. (ML)  (10/2019)

Vinous

 Copper-tinged yellow color. Vanilla, sweet herbs and balsamic oils complicate aromas and flavors of strawberry and fresh herbs. Zingy but harmonious acidity provides both clarity and cut on the long saline finish. (ID)  (5/2019)

This is one of the very best Italian roses we feature every year and the 2018 does not disappoint. It's vibrant and flavorful with just the right balance of palate weight and crisp acidity. Delicious red fruits with a pleasant touch of mineral make this a very compelling wine. Great alone or with food.

We developed quite a following for the 2015 vintage of this wine, but the 2018 is even better. Loads of ├╝ber-pretty cherry, raspberry fruit burst on the nose and palate, but with lots of mineral quality of Mt. Etna. I feel it. A bottle of this could not be a more perfect introduction to the region. Made with Nerello Mascalese.

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.
