Why the winemaker recommends Cantina Montenero Terre Siciliane IGP Nerello Mascalese 2019
A new friend of the house, a delicate Nerello Mascalese. The grape was supposed to be Sicily's answer to Sangiovese. You can feel the blow of the Scirocco, which favors flavor and structure! The wine is not heavy and works well with light dishes. Excellent economic alternative to Amarone, likes the complexity. Simply classy, expressive, powerful, smooth and rounded; remarkably low acidity. It will be a blast to enjoy for years to come.
Characteristics of the Nerello Mascalese Cantina Montenero wine
Nerello Mascalese ruby red with violet reflections. The trans-observation at the glass denotes a good nail and numerous arches of leaking glycerol. The nose is decided on red fruit. The papillary examination, in addition to plum, morello cherry and cherry, is enhanced by early tertiary notes of wood and chocolate. The sip is very rich, round and persistent, despite being a 2019. The tannin is there, but very gentle.
