Even though I love Sicilian wine, this is the first time I've actually had this producer! It's fantastic too. Lot's of herbal, red fruit notes. Not as funky as COS but has energy and vibrancy in spades.

Sooo much more to say but just enjoying the light & lifting yet intense energy of this juice

In the immortal words of Yoda! "Drink me you will!" My 1st Nerello Mascalese! The wine gods put this baby together! Just like Barolo the appearance is deceptively pale. Incredible perfume, complex, layered, fragrant, savoury. Delivering real personality on the palate. So much Yumminess. Wicked, edgy yet refined tannin! Vino that will make your heart race!

Drank at flour + water. Like an Etna rossa but quite generous fruit. Paired with everything on the menu.

Like you just tripped and spilled your sour cherry icee on a bunch of lava rocks and started licking it up. Unbelievably delicious and incredibly versatile when it comes to food pairings. Bottle went way too fast...definitely need to try those single vineyard wines ASAP.
