    "Sopra il Pozzo" Rosso Arcurìa Etna DOC 2015 <br> 3 Bottles in OWC

    Graci's new growth Sopra il Pozzo is a "selection from selection" and comes from the vineyard of Arcurìa. It is the red archetype of an Etna Rosso, a Nerello Cru with the unique DNA of the volcanic-stony terroir. Light ruby with orange reflexes, in the nose candied fruits, cooling firewood, some anise and herbs. On the palate it is silky without being smooth, its subtle wood and delicate acid wire harmonize perfectly with the flanking tannin to an unforgettable, mineral and salty finish. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Medium-bright, warm red; mature-peppery, arouses curiosity; peppery-maturing, certain fullness, fine astringency." Merum

    "Bright garnet red with a fine shimmer. Emphasizes fragrant nose, of rhubarb, pomegranate and raspberry. Bright on the palate, it shows a lot of present fruit, especially pomegranate and raspberry, then opens up with dense, pithy tannin, firm pressure and long final, in the final accentuated salty notes". Falstaff

    "Pale ruby-garnet. Ripe, scented maraschino cherry, with hazelnut and subtle smoky complexity. Sweet-savoury, flinty cherry palate fruit, with sandy, firm tannic structure and quite bright acidity. Long, smoky-spicy finish. Power over elegance." Jancis Robinson

    "This was the first vintage of an outstanding parcel within Arcuria that henceforth is bottled separately. For all the excellence of the regular 2015, this is different, with richer raspberry aromas and greater aromatic weight. It's very elegant and silky, highly concentrated with fine acidity. It's more skeletal now than the regular wine: taut, lingering and very long." Decanter

    "This is a new wine from Alberto Graci with fruit sourced from the part of his vineyard holding located "above the well" in the Contrada Arcuria not too far from the Graci winery. The beautiful 2015 Etna Rosso Arcurìa Sopra il Pozzo pours from the bottle with medium intensity and mild ruby intensity. You might mistake this wine for a Pinot Noir or Nebbiolo if you were to judge by appearance alone. However, the bouquet shows that strong volcanic character that is unmistakable in the red wines from Etna; wild berries, blue flowers, red currant, licorice, mountain herbs and crushed stone all play leading roles on the bouquet." Robert Parker
