Gaja, IDDA Bianco, Etna, Sicilia, 2019
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 also the name of a joint venture involving two families: Gaja and Graci.
Intriguing notes of citrus fruits and aromatic herbs, mainly thyme at the first scent. Cede to refreshing notes of mint and jasmine, warmer notes of pink grapefruit and easy peeler. The entrance is oily, with marzipan notes and tension, due to a vibrant acidity and salty notes on the finish. The result is a tight and vibrant wine, which shows a beautiful vertical lift and great intensity.
