From Frank: “Our entry-level red wine is a field-blend of mostly Nerello Mascalese (85%) with other local varietals from all our vineyards. Our Susucaru Rosso expresses Etna as produced in a more traditional way of blending different contradas as well as different varietals to obtain a fragrant, elegant and fluid wine with structure and personality.”
