Nerello Mascalese has, arguably surpassed Nero d’Avola as Sicily’s most important red varietal. With its newfound acceptance comes more plantings and approaches by winemakers. While sparkling and dry rosé versions exist, they are few and far between. This bottling by Murgo should encourage more producers to follow suit. Aromatically, there are similarities to sparkling Pinot Noir wines as familiar aromas of underripe strawberry, cherry pith and pomegranates leap from the glass. The compact bubbles create an elegant mousse over its vinous forward texture before finishing on a chalky, peppery and slightly salty note.

The first artisans to champion Nerello Mascalese as a sparkling wine and certainly one of Sicilia’s oldest winemaking clans, the Scammacca del Murgo family have been making wines from the slopes of Etna for more than a century. To this day they continue to work almost exclusively with Nerello Mascalese.
