Wine Critic Reviews for 2020 Graci Etna Rosato
The 2020 Etna Rosato impresses with its vibrant bouquet of sweet melon lifted by minty herbs and white smoke. It’s silky in texture yet reverberating with zesty citrus and mouthwatering acidity, as mineral-tinged green apple and spices cascade across the senses. The 2020 tapers off tense yet long, presenting a salty flourish under an air of crushed oyster shells. This Nerello Mascalese Rosato gets an official “Wow” in my book.

Wine Details on 2020 Graci Etna Rosato
|Region||Sicily: Kissed by dry, warm climate, gorgeous topography, and with tradition so rich, Sicily is any winemaker's dream. The produce grown here becomes first-class goods, and we mean olives, citrus, grains, and not just the wine. Italian culture centers shared meals with family as one of the most important and profound ways of cultivating bonds and community values. This tendency spills over into everything else they do, naturally including viticulture. This makes Sicilian wines uniquely warm and soulful, each bottle telling its own story. |
Two native grapes roll off the tongue of sommeliers when they first mention Sicily: Nero d'Avola and Catarratto. Luscious, full, vibrant, these grapes, and especially Catarratto in particular, often find their way into the blends of wines from cooler sites in Italy to bring them weight and contrast their acidity. Sicily is home to other grape varietals including Inzolia, Grillo, Grecanico, Frappato and many more. Though you can't really go wrong with Sicilian wines, beginners shouldn't miss out on sweet, exuberant, mouthwatering Marsala. What this mind-boggling elixir delivers is so purely emotional and intense that touches even the most skeptical of souls. In the true spirit of Italy, this beauty combines with virtually any meal you can think of, best suited for large get-togethers with family and celebrations of any kind.
|Country||Italy: What are the first things that come to mind when thinking about Italy and Italian culture? There's one thing that nearly everyone tends to mention, it's the food - and where there's fine food, there is almost always fine wine. Italy is the most prolific wine region in the world, outclassing even France in terms of production quantity. Even if you're a complete wine novice, you have almost certainly heard of names such as Barolo and Barbaresco, Italy's most famous wine styles. When it comes to soil composition and other geographical characteristics, Italy offers a lot of diversity, and this never fails to show in the wines themselves.|
|Type of Wine||Rose: Rose wine is a versatile drink that involves letting the grape juice soak with the skins for several days, before being allowed to ferment properly. The resulting liquid achieves a beautiful color, ranging from a sweet honey orange to a playful purple hue, adding some color variety to your collection.|
|Varietal||Proprietary Blend: There's a level of mystery and intrigue when it comes to drinking a wine for which you're not fully informed about, and if that sounds like a thrilling idea to you, then you're probably already interested in proprietary blends. While the concept doesn't have a legal definition, it is used to describe blends whose components aren't disclosed by the producer. In many cases, the wine tends to be a Bordeaux-inspired blend, but this isn't always the case.|
