Nerello Mascalese Rosso I.G.T.

Nerello Mascalese has been cultivated on Mount Etna for over 4 centuries. Our vines are over 60 years old and grown on sloped terraces. A complex, intriguing wine with subtle spicy aromas, a touch of wild berries, the right acid balance and pleasant tannins that linger on the nose and palate. Nerello Mascalese in combination with Nerello Cappuccio creates a wine that is more than the sum of its parts with divine flavor and elegance.

Indigenous Nerello Mascalese grapes are hand-picked and cultivated using organic methods without pesticides or chemical fertilizers.
