Massive Sale: 40% OFF 2016 Graci Etna Rosso + New Single Vineyard Releases
As most of you know, we here at Some Good Wine love us some Sicily. When I first got into this business, the wines were seldom and boring. With so much wine at a massive rate, they just couldn't get their feet off the ground. 

Today, Sicily is a world class area with tons of great stuff, new and interesting, coming in every year. One of these is today's producer: Graci!  Slowly making way to be one of the biggest stars here, he has real estate up and down with tons of higher end and single vineyard sites.

Today we have a great deal on his introductory Etna Rosso followed by some new single vineyard offerings. The 2016 Etna Rosso has all he fleshy red fruits we come to know and love for Nerello Mascalese based wines. Smoky and mineral driven with a solid core of white pepper, citrus and sage notes. Light and fleshy on the palate with streaking red fruits that hit and bang with all the good smokey essence. Further, this will age for another 7 years.
