La Bacca Nerello Mascalese IGT Terre Siciliane
La Bacca Nerello Mascalese IGT Terre Siciliane - La Bacca Nerello Mascalese IGT Terre Siciliane has bright aromas of redcurrants and cherry. The palate is soft and juicy with ripe plum, red berry and cherry flavours, gentle tannins, and fresh acidity on the finish.
Nerello Mascalese is generally regarded as Sicily's finest red variety, and is responsible for many of its top wines, from Etna in particular. This is a great introduction to the grape - a vibrant, youthful red with bags of cherry fruit (hence the label) in a juicier, less structured style than most Sicilian reds.
Great with pork wrapped in prosciutto, sausages, and tomato-based pasta dishes.
