Pairings with Nerello Mascalese
Nerello Mascalese is an elegant, Mediterranean red wine. Its slender body and delicate aromaticity enhance preparations with lean meats and spices. Serve at 16-18°C.

The history of Nerello Mascalese
Nerello Mascalese is among the oldest red grape varieties in Sicily. Its name derives from the intense colour the ripe grapes take on. Cultivated using the “alberello” or spurred cordon system, it shares common traits with Nebbiolo and Pinot Noir for the delicate colour of the resulting wines and for its extreme sensitivity to terroir and vintage trends. The summer air moved by the Mistral and the well-exposed soils with their calcareous matrix lend themselves optimally to its cultivation.
