Beautiful and haunting nose with violets, black cherry and mulberry notes. The elegant palate provides real tension between ripe red fruit alongside tomato leaves and oregano with a long, long finish.

 

‘IDDA’, which means ‘SHE’ in the Sicilian dialect refers to Etna. IDDA is a joint venture involving two of Italy's iconic wine families, Gaja and Graci. Friends for many years, the Gaja family (Piemonte and more recently Tuscany) provide a modern aesthetic to Sicilian Graci's staunchly traditional winemaking. The result is a fabulous expression of Etna's volcanic smokiness and elegance, but with a slightly riper fruit and powerful profile. Amazing wine.
