Amicis Graciano is our signature wine produced from a small vineyard planted with Graciano grape variety. As with the other wines from the Amicis collection, Amicis Graciano is only available years regarded as exceptional by our winemakers.
Graciano grape variety is characterized by its low yield and high acidity. Thus, it is normally used to be mixed with other wines. Obtaining a 100% Graciano wine is very complicated due to the great influence the annual climatology has on the proper ripening of the grapes.
