This is a blend of 90% Nerello Mascalese, and 10% Nerello Cappuccio from the southeast slope of Mt. Etna in Sicily. Ruby in color with garnet swirls, mostly clear and bright. The nose is earthy and a bit dusty with cherries and slight strawberries. Medium to full bodied with medium tannins. On the palate, this has a nice complexity with cherries and black cherries over a bit of char. Very well balanced. Moderate finish. Very tasty on its own, it will work better with food. Rabbit would work well but so would Sarde a beccafico (stuffed sardines). Drink over the next seven to ten years.
