Gaja Idda Etna Rosso 2018
Winery: "Etna is not just a volcano: it is a mountain that originated over hundreds of thousands of years of lava eruptions. The Sicilians attribute a female nature to it: a strict yet generous mother, which is why they call her ‘IDDA,’ meaning ‘SHE’ in the Sicilian dialect. IDDA is pure energy, it is land where every fruit ripens with many different nuances.
Mineral notes bound to sweet aromas, like marzipan, but with tart black cherry and mulberry rising from the glass. The wine shows notes of candied citrus fruits, but also soft herbal tones, such as fresh tomato leaf and oregano. This wine has a clear expression of ripe and sweet fruit on the palate. The finish leads off with Intriguing minerality, with a hint of flint. A medium structure with good acidity makes it enjoyable and refreshing."
