HISTORY: The first artisans to champion Nerello Mascalese as a sparkling wine and certainly one of Sicilia’s oldest winemaking clans, the Scammacca del Murgo family has for more than a century cultivated grapes as well as olive and fruit trees in Santa Venerina. Grown exclusively on the fiery volcanic slopes of Mount Etna, Nerello Mascalese produces not only world-class red wines but also elegant sparkling wines—and is unquestionably one of Italia’s most distinctive grape varieties.

ABOUT: 30-40 year old vines. Vineyards are located on terraced, estate-owned vineyards on the eastern volcanic slopes of Mount Etna, near the town of Santa Venerina, at 1,600 to 2,000 feet above sea level. Soil type is volcanic-sandy soil.

VINIFICATION: Hand-harvested. Destemmed and lightly crushed; fermented on selected yeasts in temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks. Aged in tank for one year.

TASTING NOTES: Aromas of Red Roses, Violets, Red Berries, Orange Peel & Clove. The palate is mineral-driven, Tangy & fresh, w/ well-structured tannins, and flavors of Strawberries, Cranberries, Red Plums, Cola, Baking Spices, Black Pepper, Clove & Ash. Med. finish.

FOOD PAIRING: Grilled Red & White Meats, Fresh Pasta with Ragu, Game, Beef, Pork, Meatballs.
