Vino Lauria Nerello Mascalese 2017

Sicily, ItalyVito Lauria is a Sicilian local. After studying winemaking in Friuli, he returned home in 2005 to take over his family's winery in the west of Sicily, renovating the vineyards, focusing on organic viticulture. He focuses on local varieties, like nerello mascalese. This is sourced from Sambuca di Sicilia, this sees time in stainless only. Pouring a lighter red hue, this slender red is teeming with fresh walnuts, wild plums, and red currants. Brisk acidity counters the sun-ripened fruit easily, leaving a suggestion of Sicily's warm climate in the tuggy tannins.
