2015 Rosso Le Casematte

Grapes Nerello Mascalese, Nocera
Colour Red
Origin Italy, Sicily
District IGP Terre Sicilliane
ABV 13%

Farmed organically at this beautiful spot above the Straits of Messina this Nerello Mascale (70%) and Nocera (30%) blend is a really exciting new listing for us. Bright, with delicate spice and black pepper this is brilliantly aromatic - on the red fruit spectrum. Raspberries and zippy early-season strawberries form a high-toned fruit core that seems to cruise across your palate on a high plain. Lifted and elegant but with that exquisitely balanced fruit. This is Etna style and feel but at a really appetising price from just a bit further up the coastline. L&S (Apr 2017)

*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Made predominantly from 70% Nerello Mascalese, the high-quality grape behind most of Etna's top reds, this is an attractive cheaper alternative to the more expensive Etna wines. Tangy red cherry and hedgerow berry fruit with black pepper and a volcanic mineral character (although it's not near Etna). The other 30% of the blend is Nocera (no, we hadn't either, but we've added it to the database). Rating: 88 (Oct 2017)
