CANTINE NICOSIA

‘Classic’ Etna Rosso

“A striking red from the equally striking slopes of Mount Etna. It’s a classic Sicilian blend of Nerello Mascalese and Cappuccio that showcases the fantastic individuality of the region.”

Wine Information

About the wine

This Etna Rosso is 80% Nerello Mascalese and 20% Nerello Cappuccio – two indigenous varieties that shine on their mineral-rich native soils. Nerello Mascalese offers clarifying red cherry notes and hints of vanilla and spice while the Nerello Cappuccio offers softness to the wine’s texture as well as herbal notes.

 

About the producer

Cantine Nicosia are now in their fifth generation. They give back what they take from their land, farming with the most sustainable methods possible. It’s all to ensure they can continue making wine on Etna for generations to come.

 

About the region

This wine is made on the slopes of Europe’s most active volcano, Mount Etna. The high altitudes temper the climate to give the grapes a luxuriously long growing season while the naturally volcanic soils invite unique mineral notes that you simply can’t find elsewhere.
