Overview of the Wine
Founded in 1898 on the slopes of Mt Etna, handed down from Father to Son for five generations, Nicosia is a historic family-owned winery rooted in the land and dedicated to producing great Sicilian wines for wine lovers across the world. Nicosia wines are a tribute to the heart of Sicily, obtained from native vineyards and international varieties that find an ideal terroir on the island, with expressions of rare excellence. They embody the light and warmth of its Mediterranean climate, the strength of its people, and the untamed, exuberant character of the Etna volcano that has both powerful nature and regenerative strength. Mt. Etna, one of the tallest and most active volcanos in the world, creates an incredible and unique environment for viticulture. In the last 20 years Etna DOC (est. 1968) has become one of the most exciting appellations in Italy. Cantine Nicosia is one of the original Wineries to settle on Etna, and one of the few still shepherding their own grapes from vine to bottle. In respecting a land that has been in their family for over 120 years, Cantine Nicosia has obtained several organic certifications and are also part of VIVA for sustainability. In total Nicosia has achieved 10 different certifications, including but not limited to: organic, carbon neutral, vegan and energy efficient.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Produced with organically grown and selected Nerello Mascalese grapes, this wine is an authentic expression of one of the noblest Sicilian native varieties. It has a vivid ruby color and a very fragrant aroma featuring floral scents, notes of wild strawberry and red currant, with slightly spicy hints. Dry and well balanced on the palate, it reveals a good freshness and a pleasant red fruit finish.
