Adria Vini La Bacca Nerello Mascalese IGT Terre Siciliane
Nerello Mascalese is generally regarded as Sicily's finest red variety, and is responsible for many of its top wines, from Etna in particular. This is a great introduction to the grape - a vibrant, youthful red with bags of cherry fruit (hence the label) in a juicier, less structured style than most Sicilian reds. Lots of fun, great served with a light chill and is a red that works brilliantly with tomato based dishes. The more premum examples are much more like Pinot Noir with some Nebbiolo like dried herbs and tannins.
