Characteristics of the wine obtained from this grape variety Provides wines of a fine ruby ​​garnet in the aging, very frequent for this grape thanks to its acid input. As the Mascalese Nerello grows, the wine dresses orange and brick in refinement. The olfactory range is generally delicate and complex, with strong aromas provided by the volcanic area where it is cultivated. Colors are, however, discharged as high acidity advises consumption ever after aging, which brings these wines to very high levels, comparable to burgundy, with the grape that could rightly become part of the world's great red nobles. Characteristic are also tannins that are strong and well present. The aromas are, however, delicate and span from the purple floral and the roses to the red fruity, to the tertiary sensations of aging, touched by vanilla notes. Nevertheless, the refined dough preserves very polished tannins, a soft taste and a perfect balance.
Notes Resistance to parasites and other adversities: Resists well to diseases and parasites in general, less to anxiety. In certain vintages with unfavorable meteorous trends, often in bunches, incomplete growth stems, which remain green or reddish, especially in the highest areas.
