Le Vigne di Eli
Marco de Grazie is one of the most respected winemakers in Sicily, best known for his flagship project Tenuta delle Terre Nere, which is arguably the finest on the island. However his newest project, Le Vigne di Eli, named for his daughter, Elena, is the one most recently making headlines. A tiny 5 hectare plot of land on the slopes of Mount Etna, he was recently awarded a Top 10 spot in the latest Wine Spectator’s Top 100. A line of wines with joyously designed labels and surprisingly low price tags make them really great value, but, as the Wine Advocate says, Marco’s “many years of Etna experience shine through in these wines. They share all of the excellent characteristics…” with Tenuta delle Terre Nere.
