Alberto Graci farms his vines on the northern slope of Etna, where some of the most exciting wines of Italy are currently being produced.¬†
Nerello Mascalese is very pale in colour, but certainly not lacking for flavour, and is the top-quality grape variety on Etna. Alberto's Vines are between 600-1000m in elevation, ensuring the wines have plenty of freshness, and the volcanic soil imparts a distinctive note to the wine.
There's lots of strawberry fruit, smoke, and a touch of blood orange. The palate is juicy and fresh, with a mineral quality and seamless tannins.
Etna wines can be quite intensely smokey, open this up a little before drinking, or even better, give it a decant for an hour to soften the wine and bring the fruit notes to the fore.
Great service and excellent wines
Excellent service and excellent wines. I wanted a selection of six wines and asked Peckham Cellars to make the choice for me based on a price range. The wines were all superb and unique in that they were from small suppliers that I personally would have no knowledge of. If you want something different at your next dinner / party then I can't recommend these guys enough.
Super-speedy delivery! My wines arrived safe and sound in fully recyclable packaging. A real bonus. Website has such a great selection it was hard to choose.
I placed my order online from…Melbourne
I placed my order online from Melbourne Australia and the delivery of my birthday gift to a friend in London happened smoothly, quickly and well presented. Big thanks to the team at Peckham Cellars
Nice wine. Easy and efficient
Great for sending to friends as gifts/congratulations. You can include a message with the wine, so ideal really. Fun range of interesting wines.
