Due Terre Nerello Mascalese 2018
Nerello Mascalese is an indigenous grape from the island of Sicily. Naturally high in tannins, and perfect with grilled meats, sausages or anything with a tomato based sauce!
The winery was founded by Vito Lauria who revitalised his family’s old operation upon returning to Sicily from his studies and work experiences in Northern Italy. Due Terre is based on important, historic relationships that Vito has with small, family growers working organically around Mt. Bonifato. These are growers that have usually been practising organics for many, many years and who have genuine engagement with the vines and love for their land. Wines are all fermented on native yeast and guided in to the bottle with the aim of letting the quality of the fruit speak without the need for manipulation or heavy sulphite doses.
