variety: Nerello Mascalese
If you want to understand age-worthy, serious Nerello Mascalese, here it is, from a micro-producer working with a high-altitude, ungrafted plot on Etna’s north side.
Big on tannins and ripeness, but at its core lies that charming, almost floral red berry fruit. There’s a lot of maturity in this wine, with some browning of the colour, and a fairly animal nose (yes, there is a hint of brett). But it works wonderfully.
