Santo Spirito's wines are luscious and sensual, always seductive in their almost fleshy bouquet, and in their buttermilk richness. And yet there's still a balance and a purity there, very sophisticated, yes, but tender as well. Generous and vulnerable at once. Duke Ellington's Sophisticated Lady. Creamy soups, Poultry, Pork, red meats. The best? Lovely evening food in lovely evening dress.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Etna Rosso Santo Spirito is an abundant and enriched expression from the darkened volcanic slopes of Mt. Etna Santo Spirito runs through parts of Passopisciaro at the heart of Etna's best production zones. This gorgeous wine opens to a dark garnet appearance with inkier colors of crimson and ruby. Crisp and crunchy tones of wild berry, cranberry, red rose and dark mineral characterize the mouthfeel. This was a difficult vintage that saw slow and uneven ripening for many producers. Marco De Grazia has evidently mastered when to harvest his fruit at optimal ripeness.
