Thanks to organic cultivation in the vineyards and organic winemaking in the cellar, the Vurria Nerello Mascalese retains a truly genuine character. Nerello Mascalese vines are planted on the historic family vineyard Paradiso in Contessa Entellina, on ancient volcanic, mineral rich soils.
The indigenous variety, typical of North-East Sicily, was introduced to Sambuca di Sicilia in 1968 by father Aurelio
More than fifty years later the family continues to create a unique expression of Nerello Mascalese from their vines in Contessa Entellina. An elegant and complex Nerello Mascalese with notes ranging from savory to mineral.
The dry, windy climate and the mineral-rich soil gives the grapes a beautiful aromatic composition that is expressed on the nose with hints of rose petal, raspberry and cherry, followed by notes of smoke and white pepper.
