This wine is our take on the Nerello Mascalese from young vineyards. There are terraces, surrounded by chestnut and downy oak groves, a typical biodiversity that gives the wines their personality. Soft tannins, good drinkability and freshness. Aged in large oak barrels, an ideal and non-invasive wood for Nerello Mascalese.
Estate: North side of the volcano Mount Etna – Sciaranova and Piano Dario contradas – Randazzo, Catania, Sicily
Varietal: Nerello Mascalese
