90% Nerello Mascalese and 10% Nerello Cappuccio from young vines (8-10 years old) grown at 720 meters above sea level, all planted to mineral-rich soil of lava, clay, and alluvial sediment.
From the rich, southern slopes of Mt Etna in Sicily this is a delight. Mostly Nerello Mascalese and a small amount of Nerello Capuccio, this is simply delicious with its bright fresh, aromatic black fruits, black cherries, raspberries, earthy notes and a splash of dried herbs on a medium bodied palate. There is enough grip and gristle to remind you that you are in Sicily before a savoury, fresh finish. Great drinking here & the perfect introduction to Sicilian wine. FWC
