Idda Bianco Sicilia DOP Mt Etna 2020

93 POINTS: James Suckling
93 POINTS: Decanter Magazine

"The 2020 Bianco captivates with an enticing mix of lemon oils, wild herbs, orange blossom, young peaches and crushed stone. It traverses both savory and sweet, as silky textures usher in tropical citrus and melon contrasted by saline-tinged acidy and pretty inner florals. This is persistent and lightly structured, leaving a twang of candied lime and a saturation of minerals to linger incredibly long. "
 - Vinous

"Sliced pear and lemon with hints of pumice and white pepper that follow through to a full body with a tangy palate of Sicilian-lemon and pear character. A joint production from Graci and Gaja. Minerally and flavorful. "
 - James Suckling

"This wine represents a collaboration between two leading producers, Gaja from Piedmont and Graci from Etna. They bring all their skill and knowhow to this venture, focusing on the largely unexplored, warmer southern slopes of Mount Etna and on local white variety Carricante – one of Italy’s most exciting, characterful white grapes. Fruit from five hectares of newly planted Carricante vines was included in the 2020 vintage and it really makes a difference, bringing a brightness and intensity to the wine. Aromas of cream, waxy lemon rind and smoke are followed by lively, zesty Sicilian lemon and white flowers enveloped in a creamy texture. It’s a vibrant and energetic wine that manages to be gentle at the same time."
