91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January 2014

(a blend of carricante and other local grapes):  Golden straw-yellow.  Complex, aromatic nose combines lemon, hazelnut, almond and vanilla.  Rich, chewy and broad but with strong acidity and a saline quality giving shape to the smooth middle palate.  Finishes with lovely length and lift.  Denser and more tactile than the Vigne di Eli (also owned by Marc de Grazia) bottling, and just as good.

An old school field blend of mostly Carricante with Cataratto, Grecanico, Inzolia and Minella-basically a roster of white grapes found on the slopes of Etna. With that mashup you get a complex set of aromas and flavors, from menthol, fennel, lemons, orange rind, and flora only found in that area to intense and well developed sensations of pear, herbs and nuts. And of course, the requisite high altitude acidity common to regional whites. Interesting and terroir specific.
