2006 Tenuta Scilio Valle Galfina Etna Rosso

SKU #1045960

The Scilio wine estate lies on the north eastern side of Mount Etna, in one of Sicily's most beautiful areas. The farmhouse and cellars date back to 1815 and are surrounded by the organically cultivated vineyards, where for centuries the traditions of winemaking have been handed down from generation to generation. The peculiar climatic conditions of the area, the volcanic soil and a low yield per vine are essential for the production of Etna’s famous wines. For the last four generations the Scilio family have continued to cultivate passionately the 28 hectare estate combining together the typical traditions of Sicilian vine cultivation (wine making) and modern technology. This blend of Nerello mascalese (80%) and Nerello Mantellato (20%), is rich, round and very pleasantly tannic, just the thing to match rustic and Sicillian-infused dishes featuring eggplant, tomato and aged cheeses.

This is a textbook introduction to the region and its varietals. Located on the North-Eastern side of Mount Etna, the farmhouse and cellars of Tenuta Scilio can trace back to 1815. The peculiar climatic conditions of the area, the volcanic soil and a low yield per vine are essential for the production of Etna’s famous wines. This blend of Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Mantellato, is rich, round and with a touch of tannic grip, just the thing to pair with grilled Tuna or rustic and Sicillian dishes featuring eggplant, tomatos and capers.
