Winemaking

The vines grow at a height of 700 - 800 m above sea level in the Biancavilla municipality on the south-west slope of Etna. Traditional mash fermentation over 21 days mainly in cement tanks, followed by 24 months of maturing in large oak casks.

Our tasting note

The wine has a vibrant, ruby red colour. It has red fruit aromas of sour cherry, mulberries and also marzipan. It also has aromas of ripe fruits on the palate. There are also notes of citrus fruits, tomato leaves and oregano. There is a nice mineral length in the finish, with a hint of flintstone.

IDDA di Gaja

Etna is not only the highest active volcano is Europe but is also a mountain which was formed by lava eruptions hundreds of thousands of years ago. The Sicilians attribute a feminine nature to Etna, which is why it is called «IDDA» which is Sicilian for «HER». IDDA is also the name of a joint venture involving 2 families: Gaja and Graci. They own 20 hectares of vineyards between 600 and 800 metres above sea level in the villages of Belpasso and Biancavilla. The grape varieties which are currently being cultivated are Nerello Mascalese and Carricante.
