Graci

Rosso & Bianco: sublime DOC wines from high altitude of Etna Sicily

The igneous rocks of Mount Etna has enriched the soils of Passopisciaro and Solicchiata, small towns of Sicily, with minerals and has made it possible for the owners of cellar Graci, set on the northern slopes of the mountain, to generate wines of exalted quality.  The panoramic vineyards of this winery, Contrada Arcuria, Feudo di Mezzo and Contrada Barbabecchi, are situated at 600 and 1000 meters of altitude respectively, in the heart of the valley.

The mineral filled soils of this territory are rich in iron and nitrogen and such quality has helped in production of grape varieties known as Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio, Carriccante, and Catarratto devoid of any bio-fertilizers.

The primary variety, Nerello Mascalese, has been cultivated mostly un-grafted for about 100 years, but a part of it is grown in the vicinity of olive trees and apple orchard.  Some saplings of Feudo di Mezzo vineyard are supported by chestnut poles and enwreathed by olive trees.

The nature-loving founders of this winery have nurtured the plants absconding from even weeding, as they have faith in the way nature takes care of its own.  They respect the uniqueness of the region and do nothing to disturb the creative energy of the land.  The exalting wines of this cellar are aged mostly in wooden vats; barrels are brought into scene only when long-aging has been required.  Such finesse has brought forth spectacular wines like Etna Rosso DOC or Etna Bianco DOC that will always add excitement to your refreshment.
