Nicosia Fondo Filara Etna Rosso (red)
Nicosia Fondo Filara Etna Rosso 2010 (red)
My experience with red Sicilian wines have been limited to wines made with the common Nero D’Avola grape variety but there’s other Sicilian wines to choose from. The Nicosia Filara Etna Rosso Sicilian wine uses predominately a blend of the acclaimed Nerello Mascalese (80%) and Nerello Cappuccino (20%) grapes. I have to tell you, it’s pretty damn good! The depth of character as revealed by the balance of tannins and hints of dark chocolate and black cherry. I highly recommend this wine and salute Mt. Etna every time a glass is raised. Bravo Sicilia, bravo!
