undefined, null

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.

This wine is full of pleasing aromas, such as wild berry, balsamic, sweet tobacco, nutmeg, violet, rose and flint.

Sommelier Secrets for Nerello Mascalese
