Description

VITICULTURE

Nerello Mascalese is generally regarded as Sicily’s finest red variety, and is responsible for many of its top wines, from Etna in particular. This is a great introduction to the grape – a vibrant, youthful red with bags of cherry fruit (hence the label) in a juicier, less structured style than most Sicilian reds.
