Importer notes from August Imports:

"Rosario Madaudo's legacy of wine started with a small farm back in 1945, when his great-grandfather began working their first vines in Villafranca Tirrena, a small, coastal commune on the Thyrrenian sideof Messina in the northeast corner of Sicily. Today, the young winemaker assists his father, Alfio, and uncle, Andrea, oversee a thriving business that includes 20 hectares on the north slope of Mt. Etna (some 90 km away), 40 hectares  in the Agrigento (on the other side of the island), and a hip wine bar devoted to bubbly attached to the winery in their hometown. 

Flor impressions:

This sparkler fashions itself as a 'blanc de noirs' highlighting Etna's Nerello Mascalese. Lovely aromas of underripe strawberry, raspberry, lemon verbena and white flowers entice. The palate is racy with lively compact bubbles that form a delicate mousse. The finish is crisp, dry and slightly salty. Pairs perfectly with shellfish or rich cheeses like a triple cream brie.
