        Learn about Nerello Mascalese — taste profile, popular regions and more …

        Towering at some of the highest vineyard altitudes in all of Europe—up to 3,300 feet—Nerello Mascalese is one of Sicily’s noble red varieties. It makes a beautifully aromatic, firm, cellar-worthy but pale-hued red, often comparable to a fine Burgundy or Barbaresco. Nerello Mascalese, traditionally trained as bush-vines, makes its home on the extensively variable volcanic soils of the slopes of Mt. Etna.
