🍇 Nerello Mascalese
Region: Calderara, Randazzo, Sicily
Notes: Lightly sparkling, electric pink Pet’Net from the northern slopes of Etna. Earthy, dark berry fruit and a brisk minerality that comes from the rich volcanic soils. Extraordinarily alive, vibrant, and focused it absolutely sings in the glass. Layered and deep, the acidity calls for food, while the tannins, while mellow, provide balance.
Estate History:SRC is a 2013 family venture with 5 wines from 17 ha of Contrada in Solicchiata & Randazzo, Mt. Etna, Sicily. The name comes from owners Rori & Cinzia's initials & daughter Sandra. It also sounds like the Italian phrase for 'essence'. At high elevations & with steep slopes, the volcanic soils create unique wines. Natural & slow fermentations, minimal intervention, large old barrels & no sulfur create inspiring & delicious Etna wines.
