Wine Review: This bright red colored Nerello Mascalese from Sicily opens with a maraschino cherry and cinnamon bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium minus bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, soft, and very approachable. The flavor profile is a gentle red raspberry and red plum blend with notes of refined chalky minerality. I also detected hints of green tea and maraschino cherry. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins and fruit flavors drift away nicely. This Nerello Mascalese is food friendly and would pair well with Italian beef braciole. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Vanilla, sour cherry, wild strawberry, a very clean floral effect. In the mouth substantial but smooth. Very expressive fruit with more complex aromatic elements of undergrowth, myrtle, and oriental spices. A wine which unexpectedly transforms into a champion of drinkable red wine with marked savory flavor and a tasting profile produced by a ferrous touch, rhubarb, and very evident black pepper. A wine for everyday drinking. Its gastronomic adaptability allows it to accompany the simplest dishes such as pasta with tomato to more complex dishes of meat and fish.
