Outer quote mark Spicy apples and pears as well as sliced grapefruit and pomelo, hay and hints of herbs. Medium body, a fairly textured center palate, fresh acidity and a fruity finish. 

91 points James Suckling
Outer quote mark Dried redcurrants, sandalwood and dried spices. The richness and the chewy tannins are certainly attractive and there’s plenty of depth and structure... 

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Outer quote mark Made with a blend of 70% Carricante and 30% Catarratto, the 2016 Etna Bianco is a wine that invites easy (and happy) drinking. This is a streamlined and tonic expression with salty mineral tones followed by white peach and Golden Delicious apple. The Graci trademark is balance, and this wine shows impeccable harmony with a beautifully polished finish. 

Jancis Robinson
Outer quote mark Very pale ruby with some garnet tints. Cherry kernels, dusty spice and some nut, with a savoury chocolate note. Brisk acidity, firm, grainy tannins and a spicy-smoky mid palate that carries through to a long, saline finish. Lots of depth and intensity here, and still quite primary.
