Di Giovanna Vurria Nerello Mescalese
"This cult-famous indigenous Sicilian variety, Nerello Mascalese, needs no introduction for those who adore it. It hails from the North-East of the island and was introduced to Sambuca di Sicilia by Gunther & Klaus's father Aurelio Di Giovanna in 1968.
The dry, windy climate of this new home in West Sicily and the mineral-rich soil lends the wine a beautiful aromatic composition that is expressed on the nose with hints of rose petal and dried cherry and third-wave coffee followed by notes of smoke and white pepper. On the palate it is a shade darker than the Etna examples with the same dazzling acidity, showing cherry, blueberry compote, and savoury, mineral rich notes redolent of real iced tea, ringing out with a long, clean, harmonious finish." - Vino al Vino
