    Winemaker's Notes:

    A juicy, effortlessly pleasing red from the volcanic slopes of Mount Etna in Sicily, unquestionably one of the hottest wine regions in Italy today. A gorgeous blend of Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Mantellato, two of Sicily's native grapes that are found nowhere else in the world. Nerello blends the elegant aromas of Piedmontese Barolo with the spicy, complex soul of Burgundian Pinot Noir -- and then takes it to a whole new level. This is the perfect red for autumn dishes, homemade ragu or simple grilled meats. Juicy, persistent and not a sharp angle in sight.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Another fabulous entry-level wine, the 2009 Etna Rosso caresses the palate with sweet, red cherries, flowers, mint, licorice and spices. Deceptively medium in body, the Rosso shows the more feminine side of these indigenous red grapes, but with plenty of grip on the finish. This Nerello Mascalese/Nerello Mantellato blend is another drop-dead gorgeous offering from Scilio.

    Another wonderful wine from the Mt. Etna area.A little closed down at first. With time nose open with spice, red berries, licorice. Medium to full body with plenty of tannin and nice finish. Given the quality a good value as well.
