Gaja is one of the most famous names in Italian wine, if not the most famous. Less well known perhaps, but as highly respected and celebrated is Alberto Graci, and his Etna based winery Graci. IDDA is a collaboration between these two totemic producer to hone the stylistic qualities of Etna's native varieties and the spirit of her unique terroir. The wines are in demand, highly rated and available in tiny quantities. STSWine

This is really beautifully rich and opulent with aromas of ripe fruit, caramel and chocolate brioche. Some earth, too. Medium-to full-bodied with soft, integrated tannins that give a cashmere mouth feel. It's fresh and very long with gorgeous texture and a delicious finish. 96 POINTS, JAMES SUCKLING

The 2019 IDDA rosso has taken a big step forward in quality. The tannins are so much more refined. According to Gaia Gaja, they increased the percentage of whole bunches used in the fermentation from 30% to 50%. At the moment, creamy new oak and soft vanilla dominate but it is still very young. Cream and ripe cherry fruit integrate softly on palate with herb and medicinal notes adding intrigue. 94 POINTS, DECANTER MAGAZINE
