Gaja, Idda Rosso, Etna, Italy, 2017
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.
Sweet aromas, like marzipan, sour black cherry and mulberry rise from the glass. The wine shows notes of candied citrus fruits, tomato leaves and oregano. Idda has a clear expression of ripe and sweet fruit on the palate. Remarkably Burgundian in weight and style for a wine from somewhere so completely different.
