At Graci, Alberto Aiello Graci remains steadfast in his respect for local traditions as well as the distinct nature of each vintage and only cultivates traditional varieties indigenous to Mount Etna
The Feudo Di Mezzo from Graci is a very savory, earthy, single vineyard wine from the northrn slopes of Mount Etna. It is very structured, medium bodied and with lifted acidity, chewy tannins and good length. The expressive palate gives flavors similar to Nebbiolo - cherry, dried strawberry, earth, smoke, forest fruits, tar, and volcanic mineality. Needs a savory meat dish like Lamb Ragu With Rigatoni or a Middle Eastern Lamb Stew.
