Winemaker Notes

A juicy, effortlessly pleasing red from the volcanic slopes of Mount Etna in Sicily, unquestionably one of the hottest wine regions in Italy today. A gorgeous blend of Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Mantellato, two of Sicily's native grapes that are found nowhere else in the world. Nerello blends the elegant aromas of Piedmontese Barolo with the spicy, complex soul of Burgundian Pinot Noir -- and then takes it to a whole new level. This is the perfect red for autumn dishes, homemade ragu or simple grilled meats. Juicy, persistent and not a sharp angle in sight.

Critical Acclaim

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

Another fabulous entry-level wine, the 2009 Etna Rosso caresses the palate with sweet, red cherries, flowers, mint, licorice and spices. Deceptively medium in body, the Rosso shows the more feminine side of these indigenous red grapes, but with plenty of grip on the finish. This Nerello Mascalese/Nerello Mantellato blend is another drop-dead gorgeous offering from Scilio.

For the last five generations, members of the Scilio family have continued to cultivate their vineyards on Sicily’s famous volcano "ETNA", producing high quality wines. Wines that appeal to persons that appreciate and enjoy the good things of life, that follow their hearts desire, but nonetheless expect excellence.

The grapes we grow in Valle Galfina are the product of both the older vines and the more recent replanted vineyards that in harmony lie on Etna's unique and fertile "terroir" on the north-eastern slopes of the volcano. 1815 is the date hewn on the lava stone built cellar and commemorates the first grape harvest of the estate. Since then year after year, each generation has respected the traditional attention and passion that is the life and soul of their dedication to producing wines, nevertheless always keeping an eye to the future. The result are wines with a strong personality, a inebriating reflection of our volcanic terroir, appreciated the world over for the balance and elegance that makes them unique.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
