Graci Etna Rosso Barbabecchi 2013


The first of the two crown jewels in the Graci stable; from north-facing vineyards at a dizzying 3000ft above sea level, this is a wine truly geared for future drinking. Like a prize fighter, tightly wound and nervous, the Barbabecchi exudes an extremely floral exterior, with pressed violets, crushed rose petal and a dusting of powdery white pepper. A wine still very much in its infancy, the mouth is tightly wound and tense, with mesmerizing red fruits and a dense volcanic core still reticent to reveal the full potential of this benchmark bottle just yet.
